You can reach the university by taking the A6 highway and exiting at Mannheim Mitte. Take the B37 and follow it past the Planetarium and then turn left following the sign indicating Universität. Once you have passed Mannheim main station, you are on Bismarckstrasse, which leads you directly past the palace where the university is located (the Schloss). The main entrance to the Schloss is in the east wing or Ostflügel. As you drive along Bismarckstrasse, you will pass by the east wing first on your left.
