At Bochum’s main train station, ICE, IC, EC, regional trains and city trains arrive and depart in quick succession. You can reach the Ruhr University, which has its own station, easily by catching the underground (U-Bahn) train U35 (CampusLinie). On workdays, the U35 (going to Bochum Hustadt) departs in five-minute intervals, and it takes less than 10 minutes to go from the main train station to the university station.

By car – Recommended route

Motorists can reach the Ruhr-Universität easily via Germany’s – and especially North Rhine-Westphalia’s – dense motorway network. The fastest route is that via the motorway junction Bochum/Witten, where the motorways A43 and A44 meet. Simply take the exit for Bochum-Querenburg, follow the signs for “Ruhr-Universität” and, once there, look for the (electronic) information boards.
