Recreational Activities

Several times a semester we organize a games night, usually in the CDI building. Statisticians from all years meet here and play board games together. Last but not least we have increased our selection of games. So there is something for every taste.

Since 2006 we statisticians also run as a team at the Campus Run. In addition, we always fight for the fun cup for the best costumes.

Doppelkopf is one of the great passions of many statisticians. Therefore, a double head tournament has been organized every semester for a long time. In the CDI building we play until the early morning hours for the Doppelkopf cup of the Fachschaft Statistik. A special feature are the many different rule variations. Whether it is played classically, according to sofa room rules or one of the other variants, is decided by lot before each round.

Once a semester there is the Statistician Party. Then a party is organized for statisticians and friends, whose charm lies precisely in its manageability. But that doesn't mean that the party doesn't go on until the morning.

On a Sunday in the summer semester every year teams with graduates, staff and of course mainly students of the department play for the victory in the annual Soccer tournament of the statistics student council.

During the winter semester, four sports are played at once: Basketball, soccer, dodgeball, and volleyball are the disciplines of our annual Multisport Tournament held in the Otto Hahn gyms.

Every year during the summer semester when it is nice and warm outside, we host a Beach Volleyballtournament.

Growing in popularity over the past few semesters and earning its place in the semester schedule is the Cocktail Night. Once a semester, we transform into bartenders and create delicious cocktails at student-friendly prices.

On the popular werewolf evening we play with you for one evening "Die Werwölfe von Düsterwald". This is an amusing role-playing game about the inhabitants of the village Düsterwald and their search for the secret villains...

Location & approach

The campus of TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity is located close to interstate junction Dort­mund West, where the Sauerlandlinie A 45 (Frankfurt-Dort­mund) crosses the Ruhrschnellweg B 1 / A 40. The best interstate exit to take from A 45 is “Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen” (closer to South Cam­pus), and from B 1 / A 40 “Dort­mund-Dorstfeld” (closer to North Cam­pus). Signs for the uni­ver­si­ty are located at both exits. Also, there is a new exit before you pass over the B 1-bridge leading into Dort­mund.

To get from North Cam­pus to South Cam­pus by car, there is the connection via Vo­gel­pothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at North Cam­pus and use the H-Bahn (suspended monorail system), which conveniently connects the two campuses.

TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity has its own train station (“Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät”). From there, suburban trains (S-Bahn) leave for Dort­mund main station (“Dort­mund Hauptbahnhof”) and Düsseldorf main station via the “Düsseldorf Airport Train Station” (take S-Bahn number 1, which leaves every 15 or 30 minutes). The uni­ver­si­ty is easily reached from Bochum, Essen, Mülheim an der Ruhr and Duis­burg.

You can also take the bus or subway train from Dort­mund city to the uni­ver­si­ty: From Dort­mund main station, you can take any train bound for the Station “Stadtgarten”, usually lines U41, U45, U 47 and U49. At “Stadtgarten” you switch trains and get on line U42 towards “Hombruch”. Look out for the Station “An der Palmweide”. From the bus stop just across the road, busses bound for TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity leave every ten minutes (445, 447 and 462). Another option is to take the subway routes U41, U45, U47 and U49 from Dort­mund main station to the stop “Dort­mund Kampstraße”. From there, take U43 or U44 to the stop “Dort­mund Wittener Straße”. Switch to bus line 447 and get off at “Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S”.

The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity. There are two stations on North Cam­pus. One (“Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S”) is directly located at the suburban train stop, which connects the uni­ver­si­ty directly with the city of Dort­mund and the rest of the Ruhr Area. Also from this station, there are connections to the “Technologiepark” and (via South Cam­pus) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at North Cam­pus and offers a direct connection to South Cam­pus every five minutes.

The AirportExpress is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dort­mund Airport (DTM) to Dort­mund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dort­mund Central Station, you can continue to the uni­ver­si­ty campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of in­ter­na­tio­nal flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the uni­ver­si­ty station.
