Getting married at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum

Couples can get married at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum since May 2013. For this purpose, a wedding chamber of the city of Bochum was consecrated at Beckmanns Hof.

Wedding Chamber
The handicapped accessible wedding chamber hosts up to 60 guests, 35 of which can be seated. The rental fee amounts to 450 € and includes fresh flower decoration. The fees of the civil registry office are not included.

The ceremony can be held once a month on a Friday (13:15, 14:00 and 14:45)
You can register your marriage exclusively at the registry office Bochum up to 6 months in advance.
Please contact us, or the registry office for further information.

The bridal car is allowed to drive up to the front of the building. Handicapped guests will also find two parking slots at the building. All other guests use the free car parks in walking distance.

After the ceremony you may enjoy a champagne reception with your guests. You also have the possibility to celebrate the event in our location for up to 60 people. We gladly support you in planning of your unique event.

The Botanical Garden, right next to Beckmanns Hof, is the perfect environment to capture the emotional moments in atmospheric photos.
