The International Office invites all new international students at RUB to their welcome events. All important information for the start of your studies is available here.

Always up to date

News and impressions of the campus can be found on the RUB's social media channels and the news portal.

How should I support myself during my degree? What if problems occur? RUB students are not alone with these questions: specially trained teams of counsellors listen, give food for thought and practical advice.

University life is more than studying: the campus is waiting to be discovered, the Ruhr area to be conquered. A wealth of leisure activities awaits RUB students in their new city.

Mobile with bus and train throughout North Rhine-Westphalia: The VRR and NRW ticket makes this possible for all RUB students.

The RUB offers all students the Office 365 software package from Microsoft for free download. Instructions for downloading are available in the news portal (in German).

Everything in your pocket: the RUB mobile app

The RUB app supports orientation on campus, offers quick access to important RUB services, provides information about current events, looks at the canteen menu, provides direct access to RUB pictures and videos and much more.
