How to find us ...
... on foot
The Institute of Engineering and Computational Mechanics is located at the 3rd and 4th floor of the building Pfaffenwaldring 9, that is
the red area on the map.
The front entry of Pfaffenwaldring 9 (also named IWZ) is located opposite to the main
exit of the S-Bahn (train station). Also on the front side of the building there is the bus stop.
If you choose to park your car in the back of Pfaffenwaldring 9 (taking the red dotted line in the map),
you take the rear entry to get into the building.
A street map of the university campus in Vaihingen and an enlarged campus map can be found here.
... by car
Coming from highway No. A8 or A81 you should head towards Stuttgart Stadtmitte as soon as you
reach the highway intersection Stuttgarter Kreuz. The exit named University is the second exit
after the highway intersection. After having left the highway, you should take a left on the big intersection.
... by train
From Stuttgart railway station you should take one of the following S-Bahn trains leaving
every 10 minutes. It takes you 10 minutes to get from the main station to the University:
S1: Direction Böblingen / Herrenberg
S2: Direction Vaihingen / Filderstadt
S3: Direction Vaihingen / Flughafen
You can easily reach the underground platform for the S-Bahn using the stairs located at the platforms of the main station.
If you don't have a train ticket all the way through to Stuttgart University yet,
you have to get a ticket to University from one of the ticket machines. You have to
pay for 2 zones. You find the ticket machines close to the entry of the S-Bahn, but
- unfortunately - not on the platform of the S-Bahn itself.
Some trains in the direction to University will only take you to Schwabstraße. If
you happen to take one of those trains, don't worry. Just get of the train at the
last stop Schwabstraße and wait for the next train leaving in the directions mentioned above.
