Stuttgart University station is an underground station on the Stuttgart S-Bahn in the German state of Baden-Württemberg. It was opened on 29 September 1985 to serve the development of the Pfaffenwaldring campus of the Stuttgart University in the district of Vaihingen, an Outer District of Stuttgart. It lies on the main line of the S-Bahn. Its neighbouring stations are Stuttgart Schwabstraße and Stuttgart Österfeld . The station has been served since its opening by lines S1, S2 and S3.
The station is on a curve of the railway line and it is particularly deep. From the platforms to the surface three successive sets of stairs or escalators must be used. Alternatively, lifts are used. The station is located in an auditorium building of the university, which was built after the opening of the station. Also Universitätsstraße runs above the station, near the auditorium building. It provides a connection to federal highway 14 and the district of Büsnau. The bus stop located on the ground above the station is served by several bus lines.
