Soiree in Storckshof, Dortmund-Barop
The Verein der Freunde und Förderer der ComNets-Einrichtungen functions as a platform, which regularly brings together active members, alumni and friends of the Communication Networks Institute (for example also representatives of project partners) in order to enable exchange.
The association was founded in 1993 in the entourage of the Communication Networks Institute Aachen managed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. B. Walke and possesses an active community of alumni and friends of the Communication Network Institutes of RWTH Aachen, of Uni Bremen, of TU Dortmund, of TU Hamburg-Harburg and of Hochschule Rhein-Sieg.
The association's benefits for its members consist of the following aspects:
- Information about the institute's current work through automatic delivery of annual reports. These contain the current areas of work, publications of recent years as well as contacts.
- Invitations, seminars and conferences by the institute
- An annual meeting of the Freundeskreis with a social event at different locations of the association: networking and exchange about problems/chances in the companies and universities
- Access to colleagues in other companies
Advantages for the staff and students of the institute are the following:
- Appreciation of excellent work (for example by the Comnets-Master-Award for excellent final papers and the Bernhard-Walke-Promotionspreis)
- Contacts to experts in practice (for example for job hunting and exchange of experiences)
- Access to experts on site (for example for the initiation of projects)
Even if the activities of their "own" institute probably have priority for many members, a variety of goods is offered through the transregional character of the association.
We would love to hear from you if you are interested in a membership.

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 20 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”.
