    The Ruhr is one of Europe's most exciting regions. More than five million people live in 53 cities, with Cologne, Bonn and the vineyards of the Rhine Valley on the periphery. A public transportation network, available to students at no cost, connects the whole area and opens its vast cultural offerings to each of its inhabitants. 

    The city, whose origins date back to 890 A.D., has grown into a modern center of business, high-tech industry, education and culture. The old districts of town with their restaurants and pubs contrast with the newer sections dominated by daring modernist and postmodern architecture. More than half of the city's incorporated area is devoted to green spaces with gardens, spacious parks and forests. The proximity to neighboring states such as The Netherlands, Belgium and France adds to the attractiveness of the region.

    All students are assigned a "double" in the Dortmund Doubles Program. Doubles are buddies who assist with everyday matters on campus and help you to get to know the entire metropolitan area better as well as arrange events like American Thanksgiving and Independence Day celebrations.

    Students are offered the opportunity to take a hiking or biking tour through the Ruhr Valley landscape with the Dortmund staff and faculty at the beginning of each semester.

    International Kulturcafes are presented twice a semester and give students from different countries the chance to present their region, food and culture. Each evening focuses on a certain region of the world and students are encouraged to assist in planning the entertainment and culinary highlights of the evening.

    Students may have the chance to participate in an internship in addition to their studies.

    Students attending either for fall or full year are invited to the university's International Welcome Reception each fall, in which international students are welcomed to TU Dortmund University and are offered the chance to meet students have just returned from abroad. TU Dortmund University also hosts the Summer Festival once a year, open to all. The festival consists of open-air parties and food from all over the world.

    The university also boasts over 60 kinds of sports associations to keep you active during your study abroad experience. Additionally, students may choose to join a Student Association, including the Chamber Choir, Wind Orchestra, University Film Club or the University Orchestra.
