Under the item Facilities you will find the item Rooms, where you can search for specific rooms and buildings by number or name. So you can quickly find your way around the campus and the city.
The learning rooms of the RWTH can also be found via the app. The point Study and the sub point Learning Rooms show all learning rooms of the RWTH Aachen University on a map.

Direct feedback function
Further functions make the RWTHApp an important tool also during lectures. Lecturers can receive messages from students via the direct feedback function (Audience Response System). Questions asked in this way can be answered by lecturers during or after the lecture. Further feedback options are pictures or surveys. The feedback can be recorded completely anonymously, so that students need not be inhibited from sending questions and feedback to the lecturers. Direct feedback channels can be searched for in the RWTHApp under Study and Direct Feedback.
The direct feedback function of the RWTHApp enables you to exchange information quickly and to communicate directly and easily with the lecturer.
For employees & guests
Employees and visitors of the RWTH Aachen University have a smaller range of functions at their disposal. In addition to auditorium and event information, employees of RWTH Aachen University can also be searched. Contacts can be called directly from the RWTHApp or serve as a destination for the navigation app on the smartphone. Using the app anonymously, without login, allows access to the basic functions: direct feedback, news feed, mensa plan and search functions.
The RWTHApp is designed and developed on behalf of the chancellor of RWTH Aachen.
