Living in Vienna can be fairly expensive, so you should expect to pay between €300 and €670 for your accommodation.

Student halls of residence are an easy option when moving to a new city; they’re also a great way to quickly make friends and new contacts.
The easiest way to book a room in a student hall of residence is to use the OeAD service (Österreichischer Austauschdienst - Austrian Exchange Office) – but you can also contact the dormitories directly (more complicated, but probably cheaper) or look for private accommodation.

Usually we recommend to apply in April or May for next winter semester. But due to the current COVID-19 situation we do not recommend early booking! Please check the cancellation policies of each provider.

Please be aware that we here at BOKU cannot help you directly with finding accommodation.
