parking permit ? (please fill in)

The RWTH Aachen has introduced her parking management with parking controls in her areas. Therefore you need a parking permit for parkzone U when visiting us with your own or rented car. We therefore kindly ask you to inform us whether you need a parking ticket or not. If you need a ticket we will send it to you. There will be no additional costs for you but we have to pay for it, so we kindly ask you to order a ticket only in case you really need one.
You find the corresponding parking area of parkzone U in the Forckenbeckstrasse (Visit WZLforum)
In the area around our seminar building the traffic and parking situation is affected by construction work of the RWTH Aachen Campus. We hope for your understanding. If you have got any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Please choose how we may inform you about our news.
