Living in Vienna

Vienna is consistently ranked the city with the world's highest quality of living according to Mercer's Quality of Living Ranking.


Studens can choose from various housing options in Vienna. Please note, WU has no on-campus dormitories or housing services. We have put together a detailed list of accommodation options to help you with your search.

Finding private accommodation can be difficult for international students so we recommend that you apply for a student dorm. All dorms work on a first come, first served basis, thus you should book a room as early as possible.
