If participation in a seminar of the FK WiSo is planned, please note the relevant formalities. In particular, it is important to observe the registration deadlines: 11.07. - 07/15/2016 (longer if online form is used)

The dates of the courses for the summer semester 2016 have been added, if already available.

New examination regulations are effective immediately and are available under the menu item Admission requirements.

Since the future timing of the "Research Colloquium" event of the methods and research module is not yet foreseeable, it is recommended that you attend this event in the 2016 summer semester.

The discontinuation of the course has been decided by the Faculty Council of the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences and the Rectorate of TU Dortmund University. From now on, enrollments are only possible in higher semesters. The range of courses is maintained for over one and a half times the standard period of study, so all examinations must be completed by September 30, 2018.

Location & approach

The  Technical University of Dortmund campus is located near the Dortmund West autobahn junction, where the A45  (Frankfurt-Dortmund) crosses the A40 (Ruhrschnellweg B1). The most convenient autobahn exits are found on the A45 in Dortmund-Eichlinghofen (closer to the south campus) and on the B1 / A40 in Dortmund-Dorstfeld (closer to the north campus). The university is signposted at both exits.

The TU Dortmund has its own S-Bahn station ("Dortmund Universität") on the North Campus. From there, the S-Bahn line S1 runs every 20 or 30 minutes to Dortmund’s central station and in the opposite direction to Düsseldorf’s central station via "Bahnhof Düsseldorf Flughafen". This makes the university directly accessible from the cities of Bochum, Essen, Mülheim an der Ruhr and Duisburg. Furthermore, the TU Dortmund may be reached via buslines 445, 447 and 462.
Individual timetable information for public transport is also available on the website of the Rhine-Ruhr Transport Association, and the Dortmund Transport Authority also offers an interactive route network map.

One of the landmarks of the TU is the H-Bahn overhead monorail which connects the two campuses. Line 1 runs every 10 minutes between the stops Dortmund Eichlinghofen and the Technology Center via Campus South and Dortmund Universität S. Line 2 shuttles every 5 minutes between the stops Campus North and Campus South. It covers this distance in two minutes.

To get from the Dortmund airport to the campus, we recommend taking the "Airport Express" to Dortmund's central train station (20 minutes), and then boarding the S-Bahn there.  A wider range of international flight connections is offered by Düsseldorf Airport, about 60 kilometres away, which can be reached directly by S-Bahn from the university station.
