Childcare for Children of Employees


RWTH Aachen strives to offer our employees supplemental child care options in addition to those that are provided by the communities.


Kita Königshügel

At Königshügel preschool, a collaborative effort by RWTH as sponsor and Student Services as operator, children from the age of four months are cared for until they go to school. The Kita building is located on the grounds of the RWTH botanical garden in the Königshügel area on Melatener Straße. At least one parent has to be employed at RWTH and be a resident of the city of Aachen. You can enroll via the Kita portal or alternatively by filling out an enrollment form provided by Student Services.
