You can buy your ticket  for the bus and the train from a DB ticket counter in the airport, follow the rail signs. Note that a DB ticket is valid on all trains running from Freising to Regensburg, including the Alex trains operated by Arriva.  You cannot buy Alex-tickets at the DB ticket machines; buy a DB ticket instead.

Getting from the train station/city center to campus

Bus connections to the University

The easiest way is to take a local bus. Both line 6 in the direction of “Klinikum” and line 11 to “Burgweinting”  stop at “Universität”. During rush hour, there are the additional campus lines C6 and C1, which you can use as well. Cabs are available at both exits from the train station.

You can buy tickets for the buses from the machines at the bus stops and on the buses (pay the diver).

Leaving from the train station

The university is in the south of the train station. The easiest way to get there is to use public transportation.  To get to the bus stop from the platform, take the stairs to the walkway crossing the tracks and turn towards the shopping center Arcaden, not the ticket office. Before you enter the shopping center through the revolving doors, take a left and walk outside of the shopping center towards the bridge crossing the tracks. You will see the bus stop in front of you. Cabs are also available at both exits of the station.

Arriving  on campus

Both bus lines (6/C6, 11/C1) stop at “Universität”.  Cross the road on the marked crosswalk, take the stairs, and walk straight, passing the Mensa on your right and the administration/convenience  stores on your left. Take the few steps uphill and you will see the math building slightly to your left.

You also can print a campus map.
