General Info

The writing lab offers its courses and events primarily to TU Dortmund University undergraduate students, graduate students, and researchers. Upon request, we enroll TU Dortmund University postdocs, and academic staff. We do not enroll TU Dortmund University external participants.

To register for most of the writing lab events, you do not have to meet specific prerequisites. Exceptions are the writing language courses for German as a foreign language and English. A placement is required for these courses.

If you are enrolled as a student or as a doctoral candidate at TU Dortmund University, you have access to our course platform with your university ID. Log in via the SSO access and scroll on the program page to the course of your choice. You also have the option to jump directly to the writing lab events using the filter menu. At the event of your choice, click on the registration button. You will receive an automated registration confirmation.

If you are a staff member or postdoc, please register with your university ID on our course platform via the SSO access and write a short e-mail with your registration request to Dr. Meni Syrou. Your account will be manually activated, and you can register for the desired course via the registration button.

If you are a visiting scholar and do not have a university ID, please register on our course platform via the guest access and write a short e-mail with your registration request to Dr. Meni Syrou. You will then be manually registered for the desired course.

Registration for our writing courses and workshops is possible through our course platform beginning March 1, 9:00 a.m.

The writing lab offers have been created mainly to support you with your academic writing and presentation projects. Under certain condition, you can earn a credit but not a grade. The only exception is our credit-bearing writing courses. If you successfully graduate from these writing courses, you will receive a grade at the end of the semester.

Please find more details in the .pdf file descriptions available on our course platform.

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 Campus Süd), and from B 1 / A 40 "Dort­mund-Dorstfeld" (closer to Campus Nord). 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 Campus Nord to Campus Süd by car, there is the connection via Vogelpothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at Campus Nord and use the H-Bahn (suspended monorail system), which conveniently connects the two campuses.

The "Dortmund Universität" S-Bahn station is located directly on Campus Nord. From there, the S-Bahn line S1 runs every 20 or 30 minutes to Dortmund main station and in the opposite direction to Düsseldorf main station via Bochum, Essen and Duisburg. The university can also be reached by bus lines 445, 447 and 462. Timetable information can be found on the homepage of the Rhine-Ruhr Transport Association, and DSW21 also offer an interactive route network map.

The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dort­mund University. There are two stations on Campus Nord. 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 Campus Süd) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at Campus Nord and offers a direct connection to Campus Süd every five minutes.

The Airport Express 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.
