Student dormitories (or Studentenheime) and flat-share communities are usually the cheapest housing options, and are therefore in high demand in Vienna. About half of Vienna’s students do not originate from Austria’s capital. Although there are over 30 student dormitories with 14.800 beds and several thousand flat-share apartments in Vienna, there is still a huge lack of available spaces.
The housing market is very tight and finding a decent place to stay for a reasonable price can be very hard. We strongly recommend looking for rooms as far in advance of your planned arrival as possible.
As the admission modalities differ from dormitory to dormitory you should ask directly at the dormitory of your choice about the formalities about six months before you start to study. The costs are between € 350 and €430 for a single room and € 220 to € 300 for a double room.
