About us

Portrait and goals

A centre for science, technology and start-ups is being established on the former Opel premises: Mark 51°7. Academia meets business in the new location – and together they take a stand for successful structural transformation in the Ruhr region.

International education and research and a university that is open to the world: at RUB the world is at home – and the distances to other countries are short.

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.
