Campus WestCopyright: © RKW + Architektur
Campus West is a continuation of the two-stage expansion of RWTH Aachen Campus. Five research clusters are being created on an area of approximately 325,000 square meters around Aachen's West Station. These clusters are thematically and spatially closely linked to the existing institutes in Campus Central.
In July 2018, RWTH took over a disused area of a former freight station from Bau- und Liegenschaftsbetrieb NRW for the development of Campus West. The development plan was approved by the City of Aachen in June 2021. The city is expected to start developing the site from 2022 onward.
