⚠️ On Tuesday there will be no public transport in Bochum due to strike.We will be sharing cabs to go from the hotel to campus in the morning, and in the afternoon to come back to the city center before the social dinner. Alternatively, you can also rent out a city bike in front of the main station (20 min ride).



We will book a number of rooms at the ibis Bochum Zentrum hotel, conveniently located only a few meters away from Bochum main station. If you wish to stay there, let us know in your registration form and we will book a room for you. We will get back to you about the payment once the reservations are complete.

We will be supporting the participation of a small number of students by covering their accommodation costs at the ibis hotel. Please feel free to apply for this support in the registration form.
