Since spring 2015 CERES has been moved to another building that is situated off-campus. The move was completed in the end of June 2015.

New Address

Center for Religius Studies
Ruhr University Bochum
Universitätsstr. 90a

DE-44789 Bochum


  •  U-train line U35: station "Wasserstrasse", 5 minutes to Central station (Hauptbahnhof Bochum) and RUB Campus
  •  bicycle: a rent station of MetropolRadRuhr is situated at the intersection of Universitätsstr. and Wasserstr..
  •  car: handicaped accessible parking lots and a limited number of other parking lots are available in front or behind the building.

The new building

The new building is used by CERES almost entirely. Large seminar rooms are situated in the ground floor/first floor. Each floor also provides smaller seminar rooms or computer rooms. 

Offices for the student service and the student association are situated in the the ground floor/first floor.

Barrier-free access to all floors and facilties.


Most courses will be taught in the new building in summer term 2015. Exceptions are lectures and tutorials that will still be offered at  Ruhr University Bochum's campus. Find more information on courses and location on CERES's website for teaching (only German) or contact the student advisor.


CERES is permantely growing. In the first two monts of 2015, two novel international research projects were granted. Another one was granted in summer 2015. Additionally new teaching staff was recruited.

In order to ensure that all CERES staff work in one building with short distances, the relocation off-campus was unavoidable.
