By Train

From the main train station in Bochum, take the subway line U35 to Hustadt and get off the train at the stop "Ruhr-Universität" (you will need to buy a ticket "Preisstufe A".) The travel time from the main train station to the university is about 10 minutes. At the subway stop, go up the stairs, then turn right. Now go all straight, pass by the library on the left side, until you encounter a green arrow (sometimes also labeled with "N" for natural sciences). You must follow these green signposts which lead to four buildings, NA to ND (which are also painted green). Our laboratories and offices are located in the third building named "NC", on the 6th floor.

By car

You can reach the university by car by following the main road named "Universitätsstrasse", then take the exit "Uni-Mitte". Keep on the far right lane and use the entrance "Mensa/Anlieferung" to drive through the underground parking decks. After about 150 m, turn left and on the other side of the parking deck, turn left again. Then at the second junction, turn right into the street "I-Nordstrasse" and follow it to the end, then turn right. The building "NC" is the second green building on the right hand side. Our laboratories and offices are located on the 6th floor.
