Frequently Asked Questions
I missed my appointment. Can I get a refund?mrbrause
No. So be sure to cancel your appointments when you know you won't use them.
If you often miss your appointments, we recommend setting an alarm clock.
My appointment started but the machine is still runningmrbrause
Depending on whether it's the washer or the dryer, you should proceed differently.
Dryer: You can end the dryer program simply by turning the switch to "Ende" or opening the door. Then you can use the machine as usual.
Washing machine: Washing programs cannot be canceled. Please inform the AG about the problem. Additionally, you can request a refund of your credit by clicking the "Report Problem" button and following the instructions. You should be able to prove that you were unable to use the machine, so it's best to attach a photo with a timestamp.
The machine door won’t openmrbrause
Turn the machine off and, after a few seconds, on again. Make sure to press the door opener long enough (1-2 seconds).
If this does not fix the problem, immediately contact the washing-group.
Never try to open the door with force!
What does “Single Room” mean?pdg98It means that our dorm consists out of floor with 15 people. Five people share one kitchen, bath and shower.
What does the waitinglist number mean?pdg98The waitinglist number is a rough indicator about how many people applied before you. The lower this number is, the higher are your chances to be seen by us and in consequence to may be offered a room. Since the suitabilitie for each room varies with external factors, your waitingtime can be between two months or two years.
What is in the rooms?pdg98
The rooms are aprox. 12 m² big, depending on the position on the floor. They include a sink, a desk, a cabinet and a wardrobe. You will need to bring your own bed, curtains and chair.
How can I get a room?pdg98
You will need to apply in the applicant portal of the STW Aachen for a room in our dorm. You can find it here. The waiting time varies with a lot of factors.
The waiting list position tells you how many people before you have applied for a room in a category. However, this number is only of limited significance because not every person is suitable for every kitchen or hallway. Depending on various factors, the waiting period can therefore be between two months and two years.
How often can I use the washing machines?mrbrause
You can book a maximum of 5 appointments per week. You are able to see how many remaining appointments you have left.
We hold office hours for you every Tuesday and Thursday in the BA room of KaWo Eins (house 2; upper basement). There we can discuss all private matters personally.
