Arrival by public transport:

The university campus is a small city in itself. That's why there are several bus and tram stops. A special offer for first-year students, from which all other students also benefit, is the Rheinbahn campus map.
With the help of Rheinbahn timetable information, you can find the fastest route to your destination:

Arrival by car

From the east
the university can be reached from the Hildener Kreuz (A 3 / A 46) via the Düsseldorf-Süd motorway interchange (A 46). Leave the A 46 in the tunnel (exit Zentrum / Universität). At the first set of traffic lights, you will come to Universitätsstraße, which runs through the campus.
From the west
the A 46 and the A 57 meet at the motorway interchange Neuss-Süd. After the Rhine bridge (Fleher Brücke) take the exit Bilk / Zentrum / Hafen / Benrath. Then follow the exit on the right (Benrath / Universität).
From the city centre
drive along Corneliusstraße and Witzelstraße (direction Wuppertal, A 46), then turn right onto Universitätsstraße.

On the campus
the designated HHU parking spaces are free of charge. Incorrectly parked vehicles will be removed for a fee.

Arrival by train

Düsseldorf main station is connected to all international long-distance routes. From there, the tram line U79 goes directly to the university: direction "Uni-Ost / Botanischer Garten" (also the final stop). You can also reach the same stop with the U73 line - only on Sundays with the 704.
You can reach the stop "Universität Nord / Christophstraße" with the lines 704, U71, U73 and U83. It is particularly recommended for all destinations on the northern campus. You can get to "Südpark" with lines U71, U73, U79 and U83 - also only on Sundays with the 704.

Arrival by bus

If you add up the grounds of HHU (Heinrich Heine University) and UKD (University Hospital), this results in a large campus area.
To reach the university campus, a total of seven bus stops can be approached. From north to south:

Südpark (bus lines SB57, 723, 727, 731, 735, 827).

The SB56 express bus runs as a direct connection between the Bilk S-Bahn station and the university at 10-minute intervals during lecture times. To reach the UKD campus, the bus can also stop at "Universität Mensa". In addition, four further stops can be reached:
