What exactly is the Humboldt Haus?
The Humboldt Haus is the international community center of RWTH Aachen University - a meeting place for international and local members of the University and a site for intercultural events. The University's interculturalism and internationality are promoted through the Humboldt Haus, contributing to the University's welcoming culture. Numerous events, seminars, trainings, and courses for all students and other members of RWTH Aachen University are held here. The Humboldt Haus is managed by an employee of RWTH Aachen University's International Office. Aside from the International Office, the AStA Representative for Internationals or AV has their office at the Humboldt Haus. They regularly offer advisory services. There is another office available for use by international student initiatives.
