Travel recommendations for rail passengers and 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 straight to the Ruhr-Universität, 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.

Travel recommendations for car drivers Motorists can also easily reach the Ruhr-Universität 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 to the “Ruhr-Universität” and then the (electronic) information boards.

Travel recommendations for long-distance and air travellers
Four airports - Dortmund, Münster/Osnabrück, Cologne/Bonn and Düsseldorf - are within a reasonable distance of the Ruhr-Universität. Dusseldorf 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 a good half an hour.

The Ruhr area, also called Ruhr Metropolis, is a densely populated agglomeration of towns along the rivers Ruhr and Emscher in the west of Germany with ca. 7.5 mio inhabitants. The area is especially renown for its industrial history and an ongoing structural change. Some former industrial sites meanwhile belong to the World Cultural Heritage. The Ruhr Metropolis was the European Capital of Culture in 2010
