How to get here

You’d like to get to Ruhr University in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way? No problem, the university is very easy to reach by public transport, bike or on foot; parking spots, however, tend to be difficult to find.

By public transport

From Bochum’s main railway station, you can take the underground U35 (CampusLinie) to get to Ruhr University, which has its own stop. The U35 (going in the direction of Bochum Hustadt) runs every 5 minutes on weekdays and takes less than 10 minutes from the main station to the university.

By bike or on foot

It’s just as easy to get to the campus by bike. The NRW cycle route planner will help you find the best route to Ruhr University. You can also get to the campus easily on foot.
