Map and Directions

The Institute of East Asian Studies is located on the Duisburg Campus of the University of Duisburg-Essen, in Building LE (red area above), with the main entry on "Forsthausweg". The IN-EAST School of Advanced Studies is in Building SG, first floor (orange indication above), Geibelstraße 41. Bus service to the University stops on the "Lotharstraße" (Buses 924 and 933 from the Duisburg main train station, as noted above). Buses leave every 7,5 minutes during business hours, and the journey to the university takes about 12 minutes. Taxis are always waiting at the main train station (the East Exit of the train station will place you on the side closest to the university). The journey by taxi takes less than 10 minutes, and depending on traffic will cost between 6 and 8 Euros. By foot, the journey from the main train station (not shown on this map) takes about 30 minutes.

Taxi Drivers usually know the name of the building (LE, in German pronounced as "LA"), but it might be best to also indicate the street "Forsthausweg" and show the driver the building on the map above.

Offices of the Professors and their Secretaries, the Research Training Group "Risk and East Asia", most of the Research Staff, the Managing Director and Coordination Unit are located mainly on the 7th floor, with Language Training, Library Support and other functions located on the 6th floor.
