One of the great advantages of our two locations in Ingolstadt and Neuburg is indisputably the central city location! By bike or e-scooter you can be "everywhere" in just a few minutes - at the university or on the banks of the Danube, in the park or in the clubs. However, central also means that parking space is scarce, at least in Ingolstadt, and THI cannot offer free parking for students.
Semester ticket for city buses
INVG, the local public transport company, offers reductions for annual bus tickets in the city and outskirts. The prices depend on your daily routes. Please be aware that students will have to order a new ticket each semester!
Booking is possible online, you may then fetch your ticket in Kundencenter Ingolstadt, Mauthstraße 4, 85049 Ingolstadt.
Parking near campus
For some parking lots close to the THI campus, reduced monthly tickets are available for students. There is, however, a restricted quota, and the only parking with some spaces left at the moment (autumn 2017) is Festplatz, all others have lists. Tickets are aon sale at IFG Parkleitzentrale in Wagnerwirtsgasse 2, 85049 Ingolstadt.
Park & Ride: Parkplatz Festplatz, Tiefgarage Reduit Tilly and Parkhaus Nordbahnhof are eligible for free bus transfer to the city. „Parking ticket“ = „Bus ticket“means that up to 5 people can travel on the follwing routes:
Parkhaus Nordbahnof: Free bus to Rathausplatz and back
Parkplatz Festplatz: Free bus to Rathausplatz and back
Tiefgarage Reduit Tilly: Free bus to Zentraler Omnibusbahnhof (ZOB) and back
Please note: Because of THI's inner city location, there are very few free or open parking spaces available. We strongly recommend that you come by publc transport or by bike! Find bus stops "Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt" right outside our buildings at Esplanade or take the 5 min. walk from ZOB.
Parken at the Campus Neuburg
On the grounds of the Neuburg campus (formerly Lassigny barracks), 90 free parking spaces are available on Donauwörther Straße, although these are also used by the surrounding offices and by private individuals.

The goFLUX ride-sharing app is available for THI students and staff. You can download it directly, register and immediately take advantage of all the benefits.
What is goFLUX?
goFLUX is a carpooling app for regional journeys, i.e. for commuting or short trips. With just a few clicks, you can organise carpools and get to work or university in a more climate-friendly way.
Here's how it works
The app automatically suggests suitable options. In addition, you can flexibly adjust your "commuting routine" if you want to come to the THI on different days and are partly in your home office.
As an employee, you benefit from special advantages: You can enter preferences in the app or filter specifically, e.g. according to women-only and men-only trips.
You can read about the exact pricing system in the goFLUX FAQ.
Here are some win-win examples:
If you ride with us, drivers will get 2,00 € for a 10 km ride and 4,55 € for a 30 km ride - this is cheaper than if you drive yourself.
If you only take one person with you three times a week on a route of about 30 km in your carpool, you will end up with almost 30 € more in your wallet! Depending on the length of the journey, the app automatically calculates the costs, and carpoolers are always paid the previous month's share of the costs in the following month.
So get the most out of your commute by:
- Saving fuel costs
- Improving your ecological footprint
- Reducing the pressure on parking spaces
Getting to know new fellow students and THI members, and expanding mobility options for people with poor connections!
