How to Find Us on Campus

The Institute of Distributed Systems is located in building O27 on the third floor (meeting room is O27/341). Depending on where you arrive and which entrance you take, it is more or less complicated to find us.

If you arrive by bus or tram, the best option is to exit at "Universität Süd." The stop is marked on the campus map. Then, head toward the entrances of building O27 (marked on the map). When you enter, you will find yourself on the 1st or 2nd floor. Go straight into the building, since stairs and elevators are at the center of the building. Go up to the 3rd floor and follow the signs to "Verteilte Systeme."

Staying overnight

Convenient bus connections are available from almost all hotels in the city center to the university. Tram line 2 with destination "Wissenschaftsstadt" or "Science Park II" both pass through the stop indicated above, "Universität Süd". Please refer to the SWU page for more information.

In particular, both the ibis hotel (prices from 65€/night), as well as the ibis budget (ETAP) hotel (prices from 50€/night) are located close to the stop "Theater", which is near the main station. At the main station (stop "Hauptbahnhof"), you can also find the Intercity Hotel. If you choose ibis or Intercity, ask for special rates for guests of the university. Depending on how timely you book, these may or may not be better than the best available regular rate.

If you would like to stay at a 4-star hotel, you can book a room in Maritim Ulm. From here, public transport to the university takes a bit longer. In front of the hotel, on the opposite side of the street, there is a bus stop called "Congress Zentrum".
