The university campus is a small town within a town which is why it has many stops for buses and trams. We suggest using the Rheinbahn's timetable to find the quickest way to reach your goal.

There is a good connection to the main station by city train (S-Bahn line S1 from station "Düsseldorf Flughafen Bahnhof", or line S11 from station "Düsseldorf Flughafen Terminal S") and from there to the university by underground train or tram.
