The advantage of choosing to rent or share a flat with other students is that you usually do not need to pay commission fees. On the other hand, there is a risk that you won’t find the right place or even a place at all. However, BOKU-International Relations sometimes receives offers of accomadation from students who go abroad with ERASMUS for a semester or a year. These offers are posted on our facebook group "Accommodation Exchange BOKU".
In addition, flat exchanges are a good way of finding a room in Vienna. You can start searching before you arrive and make contact with the landlady/landlord and/or future flatmates. In general, rooms cost between € 300 and € 600 per month.
ATTENTION: Unfortunately there are also a few fake adverts on these websites - When not using an official institution, such as the OeAD or contacting student dormitories directly, never transfer money (deposit /rent), before you have seen the room in person or have received the key!
