The Health Portal is an information platform for all university members who would like to know more about the topic of health at RWTH, would appreciate a private consultation, or are looking for a work-life balance involving exercise and relaxation.

The Staff Health Management coordinator welcomes your suggestions and questions at any time.


Focussing on Student Health

RWTH Aachen University and Techniker Krankenkasse have jointly launched a project to promote University Health Management or UGM for short. The aim is to strengthen health knowledge and skills among the entire university community, so that students, scholars, and staff can learn, teach, and work successfully in the long term.

With the implementation of a Student Health Management program, or SGM for short, the focus will initially be on the health of the students.
