How to Get to Us
The Software Security group is located in the ID building on the main campus of Ruhr University Bochum. The ID building is on the east side of the campus.
We are on the „2nd“ floor, which is actually the top floor of the five story building (floor numbering at RUB is based on floor difference to the RUB Audimax, which is quite confusing in the first place, but you’ll get used to it). It is accessible by elevator and stairs. Our offices are on the south west side of the building.
How to Get to RUB
For information on how to travel to Ruhr University Bochum by car or as a short- and long distance traveler, please refer to the official mobility information of RUB.
Four airports are close to the Bochum area: Dusseldorf, Dortmund, Münster/Osnabrück, and Cologne/Bonn. Among these four, we recommend to travel via Dusseldorf airport, as it is the largest of the four, as well as well connected internationally and to Bochum via public transportation. Cologne/Bonn is also connected relatively well internationally and via public transportation, but further away from Bochum than Dusseldorf. Dortmund and Münster/Osnabrück are primarily leisure airports and serve vacation destinations.
If you arrive via Dusseldorf airport, we recommend to take the SkyTrain to the airport train station, and then the train RE1 or RE6 to Bochum main station. From Bochum main station, you can just take the U35, and exit at the Ruhr University Bochum. (Information as of July 2022.)
