Aachen, the place-to-be for students, known for the renowned RHTW Aachen, is home to some of the most traditional student fraternities in Germany. We introduce you to 7 Aachen fraternities that are popular among students. In addition to traditional student fraternities, modern projects like POHA House Aachen offer exciting opportunities for living, learning and networking. Besides furnished apartments and shared rooms for students, POHA offers its members workspaces, cool community areas and regular events.

Their focus extends beyond academic learning to encompass comprehensive personal and social development beyond the boundaries of their respective fields of study. Members nurture their friendships through a variety of events within their semester program, including excursions, lectures, parties, as well as traditional student gatherings such as pub nights.
