How to find us on campus

The Institute of Information Resource Management is located at level 2 of building no. 43 at the campus of the University Ulm West.

Most simply you reach us if you take the bus (bus no. 3 towards "Wissenschaftsstadt" or "Science Park II", no. 5, no. 15 and no. 45 towards "Wissenschaftsstadt") and leave the bus at the bus stop "Universität West" (see overview map). You have to cross the square between building no. 41 (left side) and building no. 43 (right side), cross underneath the “south rail” and then enter the building no. 43. From there you get via a stairway on level 2 of the building in the Institute of Information Resource Management (the secretariat has room number 43.2.211).

Staying overnight

Convenient bus connections are available from almost all hotels in the city center to the university.

The ibis hotel (single room is about 65 € per night) as well as the ibis budget (ETAP) hotel (single room is about 50 € per night) are situated at the bus stop “Theater” where bus no. 3 and 5 take you in approx. 10 minutes to the University. Likewise from the hotel Intercity the University is reachable with the same bus nos. in approx. 12 minutes. If you book a hotel room at the hotel IBIS or at the Intercity Hotel ask for specific conditions for guests of the University. These could be cheaper than the normal rates which depends on how early you make your reservation.

If you would like to spend your nights at a 4-star hotel you can book a room at Maritim Ulm. From there the arrival to the University will take a little more time. Directly in front of the hotel on the opposite side of the street is the bus stop for bus no. 6 located. These busses are heading directly for “Universität Süd”.

At the bus stop “Universität Süd” you have to exit the bus and change to bus no. 5. Another 4-star option would be the LAGO, with an again longer travel time to the University (but therefore it has a very good restaurant - michelin star). To travel to the University take the tram (line 1 - Direction "Söflingen") and change at "Theater" to lines 3 or 5 as described above. 

If you are staying at a different hotel, use the local public transport map or the Deutsche Bahn widget on the right to find suitable bus connections to the university.
