Instructions for GPS

GPS Coordinates or the plus code show the location of the north entrance of building ID at level 04 when, e.g., put in web browsers like Firefox or Chrome. This is the place where the building should be entered. There are parking spots close-by, but often the next free parking spot may be a bit further away.



By train

From Bochum main station (Bochum Hauptbahnhof) the metro (U-Bahn) U35 „Campuslinie“ direction „Hustadtring“ services the university. Take either the station „Ruhr-Universität“ or „Lennershofstraße“. For walking to building ID see the maps linked further below.

By car

From Universitätsstraße the exit Universität-Ost is most convenient. Just follow the main route around two 90° bends then you will drive straight to the barrier of „I-Südstraße“, which currently is typically open. The main road goes to the left here, to the right you go to „I-Nordstraße“. Handicap parking close to the building is also in I-Südstraße.

Navigation systems often know „I-Nordstraße“/“I-Südstraße“. This is a better choice than „Universitätsstr. 150“. If you cannot find a place to park your car, you can also use the visitors parking in the center of the campus (see plans linked below, you have to exit Uni-Mitte and keep to the very left).


Maps for various topics and further instructions how to reach the University can be found on the central pages of RUB.

Finding Room ID 04 / 233


Walking directions

The image below shows the entrance of building ID from I-Nordstraße. Room ID 04/233 is at the same level as this entrance as indicated by the arrow. From I-Südstraße you would enter the building one level lower (05) or via a bridge in 04. Levels starting with 0 are ground or below-ground levels. Level 04 and 4 are different levels.

In the building you have to keep left when coming from the north entrance. Always keep left until you reach room ID 04/233 at the north-east corner of the building.
