Parking

  cars in a parking lot RWTH Aachen

RWTH Aachen introduced parking management in 2011. This means that anyone who wishes to park in a University parking lot or garage must have a parking permit.

 

Who can acquire a parking permit?

Essentially all individuals, who are allowed to acquire a Job Ticket, are allowed to acquire a parking permit.

Additionally, all the following individuals can also acquire a parking permit:

  • RWTH Aachen employees not allowed to have a Job Ticket, such as enrolled employees, entitled to the Semester Ticket
  • Students and student and scientific assistants
  • Employees of other institutions, whose workplace is in RWTH Aachen buildings and exercise university related responsibilities there
  • Employees of RWTH Aachen Affiliated Institutes, who have made all of the surrounding space at the Affiliated Institute available as RWTH Aachen parking space
  • Senior citizens completing studies for parking zone U
  • Scholarship recipients
  • Guests of university institutions
  • Students, who attend bridge courses
 

Important Information

Disabled employees and students and senior citizen students should first contact Concerns for Employees with Disabilities to learn about their parking rights.

 

Parking Zones

There are different parking zones. Your right to use the various zones depends on the location of your office:

  • If your office is located in Campus Mitte, that is Parking Zone C, you are allowed to use your parking permit to park in Parking Zones C and U. Here is a map of Parking Zone C.
  • If your office is located in the area surrounding Parking Zone T, you are also allowed to park in zones C and U.
  • RWTH parking available outside of these parking zones is assigned to Parking Zone U.

Useful Tip

Use the RWTH Navigator to view the parking zones throughout the University's campuses. Just open the settings menu in the upper left and click on Show Parking Zones.

 

Price

The parking permit is free of charge for those who already have a Job Ticket. All other individuals eligible for the parking permit must pay a fee to obtain it. Here you can find an overview of the parking permit prices.

The minimum duration is six months. If there are less than six months between the time of application and when your contract ends, you can apply for the parking permit for less than six months.

Control of Parking Areas

The division ensures surveillance over the entire parking area. All parking areas are controlled at least once a day at random times. Parking area control is conducted by employees of RWTH Aachen.

If you do not possess valid authorization to park, your vehicle will be towed by a company contracted by RWTH Aachen.

Please note:

Place your parking permit in a visible field of your windshield so that the reading devices can capture the data accordingly.
