Parking & tickets

Parking possibilities and parking ticket

There are only few parking possibilities within spitting distance to the institute. Use the central parking Forckenbeckstraße if possible. 5 minute walk to the institute.

On July 1, 2011, RWTH Aachen University introduced a parking space management on its parking areas. This means that you need a parking ticket for Parking zone U for your visit to one of our events, in case you arrive by your own car or a rental car. The corresponding parking areas can be found on the central parking Forckenbeckstraße (detailed description in your registration confirmation, please enter “Forckenbeckstraße, 52074 Aachen” in your navigation device). Please place the ticket clearly visible in your vehicle. Your parking ticket is not valid for the parking areas with the designation “S”, “Gast” or “Besucher Campus GmbH”, but only for parking area U. The ticket is only valid on the specified date. The parking authorization is checked by the service staff of RWTH Aachen University. Vehicles parked illegally are towed for a fee. If you require a parking ticket, you can reorder one until the event.
