Participation in EU Project
Premises brought up by female RWTH Aachen students in the survey for the EU project Gender-based Violence, Stalking and Fear of Crime were examined. Specific deficiencies were documented and will be resolved as much as possible by the University itself.
The university will collaborate with the city of Aachen, Student Services, or the NRW Building and Infrastructure Service for those deficiencies that do not apply to the university campus.
