Special regulations at RUB: COVID-19

Ruhr-Universität Bochum and all its facilities have closed their buildings since Wednesday 18 March. This way RUB is making an effective contribution to slow down the epidemic in Germany.

In order to support you in this time in the best possible way we have set up an online offer for you, which consists of online consultation hours via Skype and Moodle. You can find information on how to reach us here. If you have further questions, you can still contact us via e-mail at welcome@rub.de.
