Parking at the IT Center

There are a number of parking lots close to the IT Center buildings. Visitors to our Melaten building at Wendlingweg may also use the "Melaten Süd" parking garage at Forckenbeckstraße.

However, most parking spaces require a permit or are rental spaces. The IT Center hands out parking permits for guests, which are valid in the "G" parking spaces (for guests).

Parking permits for the Kopernikusstraße 6 and Seffenter Weg 23 buildings are available at the front desk at the main entrance of the Seffenter Weg building. Guest parking permits for the Wendlingweg 10 building are handed out in the secretary's office.

Please note that cars parked without a parking permit may be towed without prior notice.

There is no designated RWTH parking space at the building Kackertstraße 10. The public parking facilities along the street can be used there.
