My Home Is Your Castle

New! In February, the Housing Team organizes for the first time an online event called RWTH Flatmating, where outgoings and internationals can get to know each other better through icebreakers, online games and video calls. Here you can find the invitation to the event.

Briefly about the project:

RWTH students who are planning a stay abroad can participate in the project "My Home is your Castle". The project was initiated by the International Office to make it easier for outgoings to return home after their stay abroad and to promote contact between local and foreign students. Outgoings register their available accommodation with the Housing Advice Service of the International Office via the form available on our website ( We forward the collected offers to international students looking for accommodation (Degree and Exchange). Ideally, suitable primary and subtenants* will be found. Outgoing students have the advantage that they do not have to find a new apartment after their return and can get in touch with students from the host university/country or from all over the world. In addition, they help students who have a hard time finding an apartment, especially at the beginning of their studies. Here you can find the postcard of the project.
