Train travel and public transport
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.
Long-distance and air travellers
The travelling distance between the airports in Dortmund, Münster/Osnabrück, Cologne/Bonn and Düsseldorf and the Ruhr-Universität is two hours at the most. Düsseldorf airport is the most easily accessible one, with up to eight direct trains per hour running between the airport and Bochum’s main train station; the journey takes about half an hour.
Job ticket for employees
Ruhr-Universität employees may apply for a public transportation company ticket.
