Campus Safety Improvement

In order to improve campus safety, a site visit took place on January 26, 2012, with the Equal Opportunities Officer and many representatives from Department 10.0 Facility Management.

Participation in EU Project

Premises brought up by female RWTH Aachen students in the survey for the EU project Gender-based Violence, Stalking and Fear of Crime were examined.  Specific deficiencies were documented and will be resolved as much as possible by the University itself.

The university will collaborate with the city of Aachen, Student Services, or the NRW Building and Infrastructure Service for those deficiencies that do not apply to the university campus.

Please contact the RWTH Aachen Störstelle to report defective lamps or lighting fixtures, missing streetlamps, etc:
