Get to know TU Dortmund University

Between seminars, lectures and exams, a wide range of offers on campus provide variety and relaxation: In the cafeterias you can have lunch for little money or just have a coffee with friends. If you want to really work out or finally do something for your own health, the university sports center is the right place to go - from soccer to yoga, there is something for everyone. Music enthusiasts don't miss out either: the university orchestra, the gospel choir and many other ensembles regularly give concerts and are happy to welcome new members.
