How do you get to the Linux root directory in terminal mode?

I am asking this on behalf of my colleague.

My colleague is now using his Linux Desktop and is at the Linux terminal option. He is trying his very best to get to the root directory, but to no avail. All his efforts are in vain.

He is now stuck in the "username@username-desktop:~$" environment.

How can he go to the root directory?
