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 three large buildings on your left, two of them are being renovated and the third one is completely new. The building ID is right behind these three buildings. Due to the ongoing construction work, you should follow the way in front of the building, passing all three large 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). Follow the signs to Lehrstuhl für Security Engineering, the room number is ID 2 / 605. 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.

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.
