…​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 see four large buil­dings on your left, two of them with blue bal­co­nies and two being re­no­va­ted. Take a sharp left turn be­fo­re the first uni buil­ding. After 40 me­ters (130 feet) you will find a spi­ral stair case. Go down and then walk along the „blue“ buil­dings. The last buil­ding in this row is a so­mew­hat lower buil­ding named „ID“, it is a newly con­struc­ted buil­ding. Enter it and take an ele­va­tor to the top floor (floor 2). Near the stair­ca­ses and ele­va­tors you will find a floor plan that shows you where you can find the cor­ri­dors with the room num­bers 100 (Prof. Pöp­per, room 121) and 400 (secreta­ry’s of­fice room 439).


…​by car

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 “Ruhr-Uni­ver­si­tät” and then the (elec­tro­nic) in­for­ma­ti­on boards. You can enter Len­ners­hof­stra­ße 140, 44801 Bo­chum in your GPS sys­tem: you will then pass by the Bo­chum Uni­ver­si­ty of Ap­p­lied Sci­en­ces and then reach the buil­ding ID by fol­lowing the road. Note that only a li­mi­ted num­ber of par­king spots are avail­able at the uni­ver­si­ty.


…​by plane

Four air­ports – Dort­mund, Müns­ter/Os­na­brück, Co­lo­gne/Bonn, and Düs­sel­dorf – are wi­t­hin a re­a­sonable dis­tan­ce of the RUB. Düs­sel­dorf 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 around 40 mi­nu­tes.
