Master Plan

The city of Bochum and its university are on their way to becoming a “knowledge city”. Together, we have developed a master plan for urban development which defines the two nuclei of the town centre and the campus as exciting cornerstones of the future development.

With the master plan university-town, the city of Bochum and the universities aim to become more integrated around the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB). The long term goal is to create a district which is dominated by the universities and thus make Bochum’s strength as a science and higher education location more clearly visible.

The master plan includes our campus redevelopment as well as the construction projects along Universitätsstraße, the new health campus, and conversion measures at Lennershof and in the centre of Hustadt. The master plan is not a development plan, but serves to coordinate the projects planned.
