Public Relations

The Department Physics has developed a comprehensive program to let the interested public participate in its re­search and teaching activities. The various events are specifically adapted to the needs of students, teachers and other interested parties. Especially the offers for prospective students give realistic insights into the life at the Department of Physics and the different re­search areas.

In addition, the TU Dort­mund offers various event formats for prospective students. These range from one-day visits to TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity as part of the Dort­mun­der Hoch­schul­tage to trial studies at the Schnup­per­U­ni.

Location & approach

The campus of the Technical Uni­ver­sity of Dort­mund is located near the freeway junction Dort­mund West, where the Sauerland line A45 crosses the Ruhr expressway B1/A40. The Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen exit on the A45 leads to the South Cam­pus, the Dort­mund-Dorstfeld exit on the A40 leads to the North Cam­pus. The uni­ver­si­ty is signposted at both exits.

The "Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät" S-Bahn station is located directly on the North Cam­pus. From there, the S-Bahn line S1 runs every 20 or 30 minutes to Dort­mund main station and in the opposite direction to Düsseldorf main station via Bo­chum, Essen and Duis­burg. In addition, the uni­ver­si­ty can be reached by bus lines 445, 447 and 462. Timetable in­for­mation can be found on the home­page of the Rhine-Ruhr transport association, and DSW21 also offer an interactive route network map.



One of the landmarks of the TU Dort­mund is the H-Bahn. Line 1 runs every 10 minutes between Dort­mund Eichlinghofen and the Technology Center via Cam­pus South and Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity S, while Line 2 commutes every 5 minutes between Cam­pus North and Cam­pus South. It cov­ers this distance in two minutes.



From Dort­mund Airport, it takes just over 20 minutes to get to Dort­mund Central Station by AirportExpress and from there to the uni­ver­si­ty by S-Bahn. A wider range of in­ter­na­tio­nal flight connections is offered by Düsseldorf Airport, about 60 kilometers away, which can be reached directly by S-Bahn from the uni­ver­si­ty's train station.
