The Trier University campus is situated on a plateau just outside the city center, with fantastic views of the city and countryside. The campus is easy to reach:
- By bus: The main campus can be reached by bus from the main train station in 12 minutes. The bus routes run frequently to the campus.
- By car: There are numerous free parking spaces available on campus for students, staff and visitors.
- By bike: There are various (bike) paths leading to the campus - quiet routes with moderate inclines as well as routes that are steeper, requiring a bit more stamina.
Using the bus and train – free of charge
The semester fee includes something called a “semester ticket” for students at the university. The semester ticket can be used as a Germany-wide ticket ("Deutschland-Ticket") starting from April 1st 2024! The University of Trier's semester ticket is valid for regional and local transport throughout Germany. The digital ticket is issued with a QR code in the Portazon app.
Public transportation (ÖPNV) in Luxembourg is free for everyone. Free transportation ends at the Luxembourg border. Trier University students who travel by train (2nd class) or bus from or to Luxembourg, travel free of charge thanks to their semester ticket.
