From Bochum’s main railway station, you can take the underground U35 (CampusLinie) to get to Ruhr-Universität Bochum, which has its own stop. The U35 (going in the direction of Bochum Hustadt) runs every 5 minutes on weekdays and takes less than 10 minutes from the main station to the university.
The travelling distance between the airports in Dortmund, Münster/Osnabrück, Cologne/Bonn and Düsseldorf and the Ruhr-Universität is two hours at the most. Düsseldorf airport is the most easily accessible one, with up to eight direct trains per hour running between the airport and Bochum’s main train station; the journey takes about half an hour.
Motorists can reach the Ruhr-Universität easily via Germany’s – and especially North Rhine-Westphalia’s – dense motorway network. The fastest route is that via the motorway junction Bochum/Witten, where the motorways A43 and A44 meet. Simply take the exit for Bochum-Querenburg, follow the signs for “Ruhr-Universität” and, once there, look for the (electronic) information boards.
