Arriving by 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 (CampusLinie, direction Bochum Hustadt). The U35 line runs at five-minute intervals on weekdays and takes just ten minutes to get to the university. Get off at the tram stop „Ruhr Universität“, take the elevator up and take a right at the end of the elevator. You will now see three skyscrapers on the left, all of which are new buildings. The ID building is located behind these three skyscrapers. Follow the signs towards engineering and turn left in front of the buildings. The last building in the row is the new building ID, which has a slightly lower height compared to the others. In the building, take the elevator to the top floor (floor no. 2) and follow the signs to Implementation Security. The secretary’s room number is ID 2 / 607.
Arriving by car
The quickest route is via the motorway junction Bochum/Witten, where the A43 and A44 meet. Simply take the exit Bochum-Querenburg, and follow the signs “Ruhr-Universität”.
In the navigation system it is best to enter Lennershofstrasse 140, 44801 Bochum, you will then first drive past the Bochum University of Applied Sciences. If you continue to follow the road, you will reach the building ID.
Except the parking facilities which are limited at the university employees, there are multiple free-of-charge parking places right before as well as in front of the Bochum University of Applied Sciences, which are the closest parking places to the building ID. As a hint, the parking places might be fully taken during the semester period. Alternatively, you can navigate to the parking facility “Parkhaus West” (P12 and P13) or to the underground parking P4-P8. Please note that it cannot be guaranteed that these facilities are open everyday for everybody. You further need 10-15 minutes to walk from these parking places to the building ID.
With Dortmund, Münster/Osnabrück, Cologne/Bonn and Düsseldorf, there are four airports within reasonable distance to the Ruhr University Bochum. Düsseldorf Airport, however, is the largest as well as easiest to reach. There are direct connections between the Düsseldorf airport and Bochum’s main train station up to eight times per hour, and the trip takes around 40 minutes.
