Accommodation

Note: Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, we ask you to refrain from making binding reservations as travel restrictions can be in place and change quickly. Please consider this when making travel arrangements – always check the cancellation policy when booking your flight and accommodation!

Exchange students arriving in Vienna have several options to choose from when booking housing for their stay. These options include but are not limited to:


Regardless of which accommodation you book, please note that you are responsible for taking the appropriate steps to reserve and secure your own housing. You will find further information about the options below. Please keep in mind that these housing organizations are independent from WU. Therefore, we have no influence on contracts and on terms and conditions. Please make yourself familiar with contract details before choosing an accomodation.

Join our Facebook group WU Incoming & Outgoing Exchange Students where you can get in touch with both fellow incoming and WU outgoing exchange students and discuss your housing options.

Student residence halls

OeAD Housing

Typically, WU incoming exchange students book with OeAD Housing. You can find a list of their residence halls in the table below. Students, who would like to make use of this offer, need to register through the OeAD website.

We have made pre-reservations in certain OeAD residence halls. Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we do not recommend early booking. However, for applications submitted after December 9, 2020 there can be no guarantee that rooms are still available in said OeAD residence halls.

Vienna is home to many student residence providers. You may not get a room in your first choice of residence, but you will be able to book a room.

*PopUp dorms & Sonnenallee

In case of considering this option please note: These dorms are located in the Seesadt Aspern, an area recently developed and rather isolated from the rest of the city. The advantages of this dorm are: it is one of the best option in terms of value for money and the area is well connected. The subway line U2 (purple line) has a direct connection to WU and the city center. Commuting time to WU is approximately 20 minutes to the city center (Karlsplatz 35 min). Please note, Vienna subway system does not run for 24 hours. The last subway runs around 00:15. Afterwards the Vienna nightline busses are the only public option. Seestadt is not yet well connected by night busses and it will take you up to 1,5hours, two transfers and 15 min walk to get home after midnight during the week.
