New at Ruhr Universität Bochum?

The summer semester 2020 will be a very special one - probably without classroom teaching: your new faculties and other RUB institutions are currently adapting many courses and offers to online-based formats. Not only the expected course offerings, but also the start for first semester students will be digital. Although all facilities on campus are currently closed: We are there for you and would like to welcome you to RUB.

Enrolled – what now?! We have put together all the information you need to prepare for your studies in the best possible way.

Here you will find all the information that the RUB faculties have compiled for their new students (in german).

Always up to date

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

Weitere Vorbereitung auf das Studium?

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.
