Sustainability Office

The TU Dortmund University Sustainability Office, founded in June 2021, supports the Working Group Sustainability (AKN) in the implementation of transparent sustainability communication as well as in the initiation and implementation of sustainable projects. As part of the Organizational Development department of the Department of University Development and Organization, the Sustainability Office takes over the operational tasks and is the central contact point for all members of the TU. It also strengthens and supports sustainability projects and initiatives at the TU Dortmund and beyond the campus. In order to use synergies from the various sustainability actors and to intensify the exchange between the different status groups, the office offers networking opportunities for the individual actors.

Who works in the Sustainability Office and how to reach us can be found in the Contact section.

Location & approach

The campus of the TU Dortmund University is located near the freeway junction Dortmund West, where the A45 crosses the B1/A40. The Dortmund-Eichlinghofen exit on the A45 leads to the South Campus, the Dortmund-Dorstfeld exit on the A40 leads to the North Campus. The university is signposted at both exits.

The "Dortmund Universität" S-Bahn station is located directly on the North Campus. From there, the S1 runs every 20 or 30 minutes to Dortmund main station and in the opposite direction to Düsseldorf main station via Bochum, Essen and Duisburg. In addition, the university can be reached by the bus lines 445, 447 and 462. Timetable information can be found on the homepage of the Rhine-Ruhr transport association, and DSW21 also offers an interactive route network map.

One of the landmarks of the TU Dortmund is the H-Bahn. Line 1 runs every 10 minutes between Dortmund Eichlinghofen and the Technology Center via Campus South and Dortmund University S, while Line 2 commutes every 5 minutes between Campus North and Campus South. It covers this distance in two minutes.

From Dortmund Airport, the AirportExpress takes just over 20 minutes to Dortmund main station and from there to the university by S-Bahn. A wider range of international flight connections is offered by Düsseldorf Airport, about 60 kilometers away, which can be reached directly by S-Bahn from the university's train station.
