Development plan for Campus West
Campus West is the second installment of the two-stage development of RWTH Aachen Campus. Five research clusters will be developed in an area measuring 325,000 m² around Aachen’s train station Westbahnhof. These are closely linked to the existing institutes on Campus Mitte (Campus Central) in terms of location as well as topics.
In July 2018, RWTH Aachen University acquired for the planned Campus West some defunct terrain from the former freight yard from the building and real estate management authority of the Federal State of North-Rhine Westphalia (Bau- und Liegenschaftsbetrieb NRW). In a next step, the master plan for Campus West will be revised and the formal urban development planning procedure will be initiated once it has been adopted. The development plan (D plan) is to be adopted in 2020. Then the development of the site can begin.
