Train services to Saarbrücken
High-speed ICE/TGV services are available from Frankfurt/Mannheim and Paris to Saarbrücken central station. Regional services run from Mainz, Trier and Strasbourg. At specific times it is worth leaving the regional train at Dudweiler station or Scheidt station and change for the bus.

Bus services to Saarbrücken campus
To get from Saarbrücken central station to the university campus, take either bus number 102 (to ‘Dudweiler-Dudoplatz’) or bus numbers 112 or 124 (to ‘Universität’). These services run every 30 minutes. Buses also run to the university from the districts of Saarbrücken, St. Ingbert and Neunkirchen. A shuttle bus organized by AStA runs between the Saarbrücken and Homburg university campuses.
