A few notes on ticketing
If you stay in Munich, you have basically three options to buy tickets to get to the University:
  1. A one-day-ticket for "München Innenraum", which is valid for all over Munich (white zone) (but not all suburbs) and valid to get to the university. The ticket needs to be validated after buying it and is valid until the next day 4 a.m. 
  2. A one-trip-ticket, valid for one way to Neubiberg. It needs say "1 Zone". 
  3. A multi-ticket, so called "Streifenkarte". It has ten "stripes". For a one-way trip from / to Munich to / from Neubiberg, you need to validate 2 stripes.
Getting from the Airport to the city is more expensive. We strongly recommend to use public transport and buy a day ticket "Tageskarte Gesamtnetz" for approx. 12 Euro. A taxi ride is approx. 60 Euro and depending of the time of arrival not faster. To all hotels on our recommendation list, you'll prefer the S8 over the S1, because it is quicker. Only for the Mercure Hotel, you'll need to change at Munich East (Ostbahnhof) to the underground. All other hotels are conviniently located close to a train stop.

Train station Neuperlach Süd
The university is easily accessible from the suburban and underground train station at "Neuperlach Süd" (trains: U5 to Neuperlach Süd, S6 to Aying or öhenkirchen-Siegertsbrunn). From there it is a 5 minute bus ride (busses 217 to Campeon or 218 to Unterhaching) to the campus entrance. The stop's name is "Lilienthalstrasse". It is the second stop. You might ask the driver to assist you, some of them actually speak German, a few English - and again some of them a really helpful. There is a bus every 10 minutes and no need to hurry, if you arrive by train, because the bus will leave just before the train arrives. Although, on your way back to the city be aware that the underground will leave 1-2 minutes after the bus arrived.

By car

The easiest way is to follow the signs to the Autobahn A8 to Salzburg and leave it at the exit "Neubiberg Süd". From there, traffic signs will guide you the remaining kilometre.

Note on hotels in Germany

In Germany, hotels are classified using "stars". A five star (5*) hotel is considered a top of the notch high class hotel, 4* hotels are very comfortable (first class hotels). 3* hotels (tourist class) are probably the minimum one would want to book in big cities like Munich, although in rural areas they might offer an excellent service.
