From Bochum Main Station please take subway "U 35" towards final destination "Hustadt" and get out at stop "Ruhr-Universitaet". The ride takes about 10 minutes to the stop "Ruhr-Universitaet". In the daytime, the subway runs every 5 minutes (please see enclosed picture Lageplan_RUB...). For the time of the symposium we organize a shuttle.

The congress hall „Veranstaltungszentrum“ is located down under the refectory of the University (floor 04). From stop „Uni Mitte“ please head for „Audi-Max” (5 minutes away). Behind Audi-Max you will find the refectory building. There please find the signposted way to the congress hall. (Veranstaltungszentrum, room 2b, floor 04) (please see enclosed picture Anfahrt-RUB...).
