The AStA's bicycle self-help workshop offers all students and university members the opportunity to repair their bicycles themselves. The offer is aimed at those who have the confidence to work on their bike themselves, but for whom it fails due to a lack of suitable premises and tools. Even those who have never been interested in the functioning of derailleur gears or the lighting system are in the right place: if necessary, there is support for the repair.

The bicycle self-help workshop is located in the Dörstelmann House on the South Campus. From Lecture Hall Building I or the Archeteria, you can reach the bicycle repair shop by walking past the glass Rudolf Chaudoire Pavilion towards Baroper Straße and turning right. After a few metres you will see driveway 43 on the left, which you follow to the end of the car park. There you will see the Dörstelmann house. The entrance to the bicycle workshop is on the right-hand side.

Yes, this is possible. It is necessary that the batteries are transported and stored in a fireproof battery bag (e.g. Lipo Safe Bag) and that there are no flammable materials in the immediate vicinity of where the battery bag is placed. Furthermore, the batteries must not be charged at the workplace.

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.
