One of the services that the Master Office provides to new students is assistance in finding accommodation. RWTH International Academy offers new flat-shares with fully furnished rooms at Oppenhoffallee. An information broschure about our flat-share is available for download. Please find more about our accommodation project here: https://housing-aachen.de/.

Students may also choose to live in a student dormitory or in private accommodation, a shared flat - a cheap and fun alternative to the dormitories.
