Free Meal Project (Freitisch)

Together with the Studierendenwerk Aachen, the AStA offers the Freitisch project for all students of the RWTH. We want to support students who are in a difficult financial situation. Freitisch means that you can eat one meal a day free of charge in all dining halls of the Studierendenwerk. However, you must submit an application.

Who can get a free table? All students who have an application approved by the Social Committee.

This includes:

  • A long-term social loan.
  • A proRWTH scholarship.
  • An approved refund of semester fee due to social hardship.

One of them applies to you? Requesting your free table is easy.

Applying for Free Meal

For this you just have to write a mail to, which should include:

  • Your Name
  • The confirmation email about the approval of your application
  • Your certificate of studies

We have already prescribed you a mail, you just need to enter your information and attach the appropriate documents:
