Accommodation

Student Residences

TU Wien has no own rooms in student residences at its disposal. There are different non-profit student residence providers in Vienna. The price of a room ranges between ~ € 250,- and € 700,- per month.

Booking a room in a student residence is in your own responsibility. We strongly advise you to book an accommodation before you come to Vienna – the sooner, the better! Please inform yourself how to apply for a room via the webpages of the student residences.

Private accommodation

Prices for private accommodation are usually higher than for rooms in student residences. Additionally, since landlords generally want to get to know tenants personally, you will have to search for a flat after you arrive in Vienna.

On the platform, you can search rooms offered by outgoing students, as well as other rooms listed by verified private landlords or Housing Anywhere partner websites for free and book it by paying an administrative service fee which is 25 % of the first month‘s rent, up to a limit of EUR 250,-, via the Housing Anywhere platform.

Booking via Housing Anywhere enables you to get your new address months in advance. Housing Anywhere will send you a professional invoice following your booking. This document can be useful in obtaining a visa or funding for your exchange.
