Kawo2 – The dormitory

Address: Kastanienweg 21-35

The Kawo2 is one of three dormitories at Kastanienweg in the West of Aachen.
Its location between the RWTH's main campus around the main building and Campus Melaten provides short ways to the university.

The dormitory has partly furnished rooms in shared flats and also partly furnished apartments.
In the outdoor area a barbecue can be made and a vegetable garden can be used together with your neighbors.

Small shops in the neighborhood and our own drinks machine ensure the culinary well-being.

Prior knowledge/experience wished, but not necessary.


The K2-Bar is the dorm bar for the last 20 years and opens every Tuesday on 22 o'clock (10pm) for residents and students from nearby.

The bar is run by residents voluntary and is a place to establish new contacts for residents and other students and start or end the evening in pleasant atmosphere.
