The airport has good connections to Saarbrücken from its own train station "Frankfurt Flughafen". There are a connections around every 45 minutes, however check the travel duration and if you have to change trains (e.g. in Mannheim or Mainz).

Please note that there is no free parking on campus, thus we recommend to use public transport to travel from Saarbrücken city centre/main station to Saarland University.

Saarbrücken offers a variety of hotels in several categories ranging from budget to three-star hotels. As the campus is located outside of the city centre we recommend accomodation closer to the centre as public buses are very frequently going to Saarland University (bus lines: 101, 102,111, 112, 124; bus stops in the city: Rathaus, Hauptbahnhof or Haus der Zukunft to Universität, times can be found here). Here are a few hotel recommendations:
