About us

Portrait and goals

Diversity has shaped RUB as a reform university from day one. We believe that the diversity of the people who work, study, research and teach here is our great strength. Everyone at the university should be able to foster their abilities and talents with their different cultural and biographical backgrounds.

RUB is committed to sustainability and to sustainable campus development.

The UA Ruhr is an alliance between Ruhr University Bochum, TU Dortmund University, and the University of Duisburg-Essen, the three largest universities in Germany’s thriving Ruhr area. Each of our institutions has a strong tradition of breaking down walls between disciplines. We believe in the benefits of collaboration on all levels of scholarship and research, which is one of the reasons we came together in this unique university alliance.

All partners in the network Univercity aim to increase the profile of Bochum as a city of science and education and provide opportunities for students at all universities in the city.
