Discover the campus
A stroll through the Ruhr University holds many surprises: Only a few hundred
meters away from the tranquility of the Botanical Garden you will find the
pulsating campus life and works of famous artists.
We invite you to a tour across the campus: Explore the RUB on your own or follow one of the suggested routes and get a nice impression of the campus.
Long or short route
Our extended tour (ca. 3.8 km, not barrier free) takes you from the center
of the campus east to the buildings of the Natural Sciences and Engineering,
through the Botanical Garden and Chinese Garden, and back to the central axis
along the canteen and Audimax. Finally, we make a short detour to the west
to visit the Social Sciences and Medicine.
The short tour (barrier free) concentrates on the center of the campus with the library, Audimax, canteen, art collections, and some additional stations.
Both routes are accessible outside the opening hours of the buildings. Nevertheless, please pay attention to the opening hours of the Botanical Garden and the operation hours of the elevators (barrier free route).
