Student Housing

Aachen Student Services offer modern and inexpensive housing for 4,811 students in 23 locations in Aachen and Jülich. The student residence buildings are student-governed, allowing the students numerous opportunities to actively take part in determining their own living conditions.  Options include single rooms, suites for 2-5 roommates, full apartments, and family housing arrangements. Access to cable TV and Internet, laundry facilities, as well as recreation and party rooms are standard amenities. All residences are conveniently located with good public transportation to the universities.

In addition to these university-owned buildings, Aachen Student Services have capacity for another 70 students in a private student residence (Haarener Gracht in Aachen).

Aachen Student Services also supervise the project “Wohnduo – Wohnen für Hilfe”, in which students receive reduced rent in exchange for doing small jobs for the elderly or helping others who need assistance.
