During the time spent together in dormitories, friendships and relationships often develop over many years. This is also the case in our dormitory, which is why we want to promote contact between alumni and residents.



Former residents and current residents meet in the dormitory at the alumni reunion. This meeting has already taken place successfully in 2018. Former residents from all over the world travelled to Aachen for the meeting. At noon we had a barbecue and in the evening the food was served by a party service. The beverage catering was taken care for by the residents. The meeting was financed by donations from the alumni. The management was done by a team of residents and alumni.

At least every 5 years we would like to have a meeting of the alumnis and residents.

Former residents of the “SMS DEMAG Kolleg”

DEMAG Wohnheim

On the site of our dormitory used to be the “SMS DEMAG Kolleg”, which also had a lively community life and a dormitory association, but was demolished in 2012 in favour of the HBS. We have adopted the alumni of the “SMS DEMAG Kolleg” and can now look back on a history of alumni up to 1962.
