Aachen not only provides its students with an excellent range of courses, but with everything they need for their daily life. However, a prerequisite for working and living is to have accommodation.
EXTRARAUM-AACHEN.de DE offers you the new student housing exchange for the Aachen area.
Here you can find apartments available in the Aachen area, which may be filtered according to your individual needs. In addition, you have the possibility to place a free advert for your apartment or your room in a shared apartment. If you have any questions our housing exchange advisers are available on Wednesdays and Fridays between 10 am and 2 pm via telephone or via mail. An additional service is the housing space ticker, which publishes the adverts on our Facebook page.
Once the stress of finding accommodation and moving in is over, it’s time to enjoy the many advantages of the city. On www.extraraum-aachen.de you find not only the housing exchange, but useful information relating to habitation and about everything Aachen has to offer.
The wildest expectations were far exceeded: Approximately 10,000 additional students have enrolled at the RWTH and at the FH Aachen. And the number will remain high. Until 2025, more than 50,000 students each year will liven up the city. At least half of them would like to live in Aachen.
One thing is clear: Aachen welcomes each and every student.
The city of Aachen, its universities as well as the student unions and their executive committees were the first ones in North Rhine-Westphalia to deal intensively with the rush of students. Each new student is welcome and should be able to study successfully and under acceptable conditions. To ensure this, an extensive catalogue of measures has been implemented - from additional personnel through construction projects to the EXTRARAUM campaign.
Since 2011, the campaign has called attention to the situation of students in Aachen and has asked for assistance. With creative communication measures it appealed to the citizens‘ sense of community and their hospitality. Together, extra space (“Extra Raum”) to live could be created in Aachen. EXTRARAUM has sensitized potential landlords to provide housing and has assisted students in their apartment hunting.
Now it’s your turn. Our new housing exchange provides you with up-to-date adverts and the ticker posts them on our Facebook page. If you have a room or an apartment to let you can advert it online free of charge. If you have any questions our housing exchange advisers are available on Wednesdays and Fridays between 10 am and 2 pm via telephone or via mail.
