Travel recommendations (public transit)
Bochum Central Station is served by ICE, IC, EC, regional and suburban trains at a high frequency. From there, you can reach the University easily by taking underground line U35 (direction Bochum Hustadt) straight to the stop Ruhr-Universität. The U35 runs at five-minute intervals on weekdays and takes just ten minutes to get to the university. From the stop Ruhr-Universität to the conference venue it is an additional walk of about 10 minutes.

Travel recommendations (flights)
Four airports – Dortmund, Münster/Osnabrück, Cologne/Bonn and Düsseldorf – are within a reasonable distance of the Ruhr-University Bochum. Düsseldorf International 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 a good half an hour.

We recommend to avoid Düsseldorf-Weeze Airport (75km from Düsseldorf International Airport), as they do not offer good transportation services.

Travel recommendations (car)
Motorists can also easily reach the Ruhr-University Bochum via the dense network of motorways in Germany and especially in North Rhine-Westphalia. 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 to Ruhr-Universität, and then follow the (electronic) information boards. Free parking is signposted.
