Problem situations

Personal psychological counseling for employees

Many of us are confronted with stresses and strains from our professional and/or private environment which, due to changes in the social and technical environment, appear more complex and difficult than was the case in the past. Against this background, it has been agreed in consultation with the staff councils to provide all employees of TU Dortmund University with an expert psychological counseling service.

Employees of  TU Dortmund can therefore also take advantage of counseling sessions for personal concerns at the Psychological Student Counseling Service or the Company Medical Service. In both facilities, the aim is to reflect on personal problem situations and to work out possible solutions. The range of services offered includes

  • Crisis intervention in acute cases
  • Brief counseling with an open topic and discussion of a possible further course of action
  • information and advice on psychosocial prophylaxis
  • Support in the search for a suitable treatment center

The counseling services are, of course, confidential.

Student-related support

In everyday life, situations occur in which academic and nonacademic employees of TU Dortmund University are concerned about students. In such cases, the counselors of the Psychological Student Counseling Service are available. During the conversation, the employees can get a psychological assessment of the situation and consider behavioral strategies together with the counselors. The contact to the Psychological Student Counseling can be made by telephone or by mail.

Service offerings to support students

Whether everyday situations such as dealing with postponing and exam-anxious students or extraordinary situations such as meeting students with mental illnesses - the support and guidance of students is sometimes also a challenge. The Central Student Advisory Service therefore offers formats from which both teachers and students can benefit.

The offers are aimed at all interested teachers at TU Dortmund University and are free of charge.

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.

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”.
