Getting To the Ruhr-University

By public transport
Bochum Central Station is served by ICE, IC, EC, regional, and suburban trains at a high frequency. From there, you can reach us easily by taking the underground line U35 (CampusLinie) straight to the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB), which has its own station named after it. The U35 (direction Bochum Hustadt) runs at five-minute intervals on weekdays and takes just ten minutes to get to the university.
For further information visit the Homepage of the Deutsche Bahn: www.bahn.de

By car
Motorists can also easily reach the RUB via the dense network of motorways in Germany and especially in North Rhine-Westphalia. The quickest route is via the motorway junction Bochum/Witten, where the A43 and A44 meet. Simply take the exit Bochum-Querenburg, follow the signs “Ruhr-Universität” and then the (electronic) information boards.

By plane
Four airports – Dortmund, Münster/Osnabrück, Cologne/Bonn, and Düsseldorf – are within a reasonable distance of the RUB. Düsseldorf Airport, however, is not only the largest, but also the most easily accessed: there are direct connections between the airport and Bochum's main train station up to eight times per hour, and the journey only takes around half an hour.

Getting to Beckmanns hof
To reach the Beckmanns Hof you have to cross the campus. Pass the University Library ("Universitätsbibliothek"), the Audimax, and the "Mensa" (canteen) on the right side and walk down the stairs till you reach a parking lot. Walk left and leave the campus behind. Then turn right, walk down the hill, and follow the signs to "Beckmanns Hof".
