Location & approach

The TU Dort­mund campus is located near the Dort­mund West interchange, where the A45 Sauerland line crosses the B1/A40 Ruhr expressway. The Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen exit on the A45 leads to the South Cam­pus, the Dort­mund-Dorstfeld exit on the A40 leads to the North Cam­pus. Coming from the A45, you can turn onto Stockumer Straße via Universitätsstraße. This in turn is connected to Baroper Straße, along which Cam­pus South extends. If you take the exit of the A-40, the route via Emil-Figge Straße, Marie-Curie Allee to Baroper Straße makes sense. If you turn from Baroper Straße into Au­gust-Schmidt Straße, you have the possibility to reach the parking lot directly behind the GB III.

The South Cam­pus is connected via Stockumerstraße by bus lines 440 and 449, which run every 10 minutes. Cam­pus South can be reached on foot from the Am Gardenkamp stop, and the Eichlinghofen H-Bahn station is also located near the Eichlinghofen stop. The bus lines connect to the U42 light rail line at the Barop Parkhaus stop, which provides connections to the Dort­mund-Hombruch district and Dort­mund downtown. 

From Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen, the South Cam­pus is connected to the H-Bahn network via the Eichlinghofen H-Bahn station. Line 1 runs here every 10 minutes, and the South Cam­pus is served by the Cam­pus Süd stop. 
A connection to Cam­pus North is also provided via the H-Bahn. Line 2 shuttles between Cam­pus North and Cam­pus South every 5 minutes.

The AirportExpress is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dort­mund Airport (DTM) to Dort­mund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dort­mund Central Station, you can continue to the uni­ver­si­ty campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of in­ter­na­tio­nal flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the uni­ver­si­ty station.

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”.
