For international students, the Corona pandemic has had a very different impact. For many, the actual face-to-face study in another country has turned into a digital study on their own couch in their home town. We wanted to know from our master's students where they are currently and when they are planning to return to Germany, should they be abroad or in their home countries.

Boarding- and Apartmenthouse RWTH International Academy

To ensure that our students and participants are perfectly cared for during their education and training, our new boarding house and apartment building will open on June 2021 in the heart of Aachen's city center. 64 beds in the boarding house and 41 apartments for long-term living will then be available - and some of them with a view of the Aachen Cathedral spires!
