Location & approach

From A1

Take exit Kreuz Dortmund/Unna to merge onto A44 toward Dortmund, which changes into the B1. Exit Dortmund-Dorstfeld toward Universität (onward see map).

From A 45

Exit Dortmund-Eichlinghofen toward Universität (onward see map).

Alternatively, you can calculate the route here: Google Maps.


Arrival by Deutsche Bahn to Dortmund or Bochum central station.

From Dortmund central station, take the S1 city train in the direction of Düsseldorf to the "Dortmund Universität" station (7 minutes journey time).

From Bochum central station, take the S1 city train in the direction of Dortmund to the "Dortmund Universität" station (14 minutes journey time).

The city train runs regularly every 20 minutes in both directions.  From the city train station, take the Skytrain (S-Universität stop) to the Campus Süd stop (1 stop, runs every 10 minutes).

From Dort­mund Airport

By taxi to TU Dortmund University, Campus South (approx. 20 min and 30 €, see  Map)

From Düsseldorf Airport

Take the city train S1 in the direction of Dortmund to the "Dortmund-Universität" station (approx. 60 min). From here, take the Skytrain in the direction of Campus South or Eichlinghofen (runs every 10 minutes and takes approx. 3 min.).


The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity. There are two stations on North Campus. One (“Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S”) is directly located at the suburban train stop, which connects the uni­ver­si­ty directly with the city of Dort­mund and the rest of the Ruhr Area. Also from this station, there are connections to the “Technologiepark” and (via South Campus) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at North Campus and offers a direct connection to South Campus every five minutes.


The facilities of TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity are spread over two campuses, the larger Campus North and the smaller Campus South. Additionally, some areas of the uni­ver­si­ty are located in the adjacent “Technologiepark”.
