Central Administration

All administrative employees have the opportunity to borrow the KidsBox free of charge. The KidsBox is currently located in Department 3.2 (Human Resources), Wilhelm-Dilthey-Straße 1, South Campus.

The loan can be used free of charge by all members of the TU administration after prior reservation. To do so, send an E-Mail as early as possible (two weeks in advance) and let us know when and where you need the KidsBox and for how long. This long advance notice is necessary because the transport of the KidsBox has to be organized.

Important: for organizational reasons, the delivery and removal cannot take place on a Wednesday.

The KidsBox location must be accessible without barriers, as the KidsBox is very heavy and can only be transported on wheels. The KidsBox can only be brought into buildings where TU employees work.

The transport of the KidsBox to the agreed place of use and back is organized by the Staff Office Equal Opportunities Family and Diversity together with the Department 6.1 of the TU Dortmund University.

Before the KidsBox is transported away again, it should be clean, assembled and closed. Please check the contents for completeness (list is in the KidsBox). If anything is missing, please give an E-Mail feedback.

Please urgently observe our terms of use. By using the KidsBox you accept the terms of use.

By using KidsBox, the terms of use are automatically accepted.

What do I have to pay attention to?

The use of KidsBox is at your own risk. Unsupervised use of KidsBox is not permitted.

Users are responsible for the careful handling of KidsBox and its contents.

For hygienic reasons, pillows, blankets or fitted sheets (for the mattress and travel cot) as well as diapers, wet baby wipes, etc. are not included. Used consumables (diapers, etc.) must be disposed of independently.

The play materials in the drawers of the KidsBox are an employment offer. The use of KidsBox does not mean that the room in question is child-friendly or childproof, or that the toys in KidsBox are actually suitable for the child in question. Therefore, taking into account your child's stage of development, please check in particular whether the toys are suitable for your child and pay attention to possible sources of danger in your office (cables, drawers, sockets, etc).

Please note: for organizational reasons, the delivery and removal cannot take place on a Wednesday.

When may the Kidsbox not be used?

KidsBox may not be used if the child in care has a contagious disease (chicken pox, measles, scarlet fever, rubella, gastrointestinal disease or similar) or if there is a suspicion of one of these diseases.

Use is also excluded in the event of severe febrile illnesses or infestation with transmissible parasites (head lice, fleas, etc.).

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 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.


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 facilities of TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity are spread over two campuses, the larger Cam­pus North and the smaller Cam­pus South. Additionally, some areas of the uni­ver­si­ty are located in the adjacent “Technologiepark”.
