Housing in Vienna

New Webster Dormitory Close to the City Center

ÖJAB Webster Residence Am Augarten

All students accepted to the Webster University Vienna undergraduate program as a freshmen or transfer student  are required to spend their first academic semester living at the ӦJAB Webster Residence Am Augarten. Students accepted to the graduate program are exempt from this regulation. Webster Vienna’s mandatory short term housing (one semester minimum, extension possible on a semester basis) is within walking distance to our new campus. Newly renovated, each room is fully furnished and includes a fridge, microwave, and its own ensuite bathroom. The short term rental comes with unlimited wireless internet access and a weekly cleaning service.

Students who live in Webster housing are more likely to earn better grades, become involved on campus, interact with faculty, and are much more likely to graduate. The student dormitories are a ten minute walk from our campus, Palais Wenkheim, and two subway stops away from Vienna’s city center.

To arrange for your accommodation, please get in touch with the housing coordinator at augarten@webster.ac.at.

Exemption to live on campus can be requested with legitimate reason. For exemption please also write to the Student Affairs Coordinator Ms. Jutta Pedigo at pedigo@webster.ac.at. While priority is given to freshmen and transfer students, on-campus room placement is not always exclusive. This would depend on availability.

Finding your own Housing in Vienna

If our dorms are full, or you would prefer to look for accommodation on your own, we have compiled a list of recommended housing options in Vienna.  

Do not underestimate the process of finding an apartment in Vienna -- start informing yourself about the housing market early on, and come prepared to pay large deposits.  Not many apartments are privately rented, which means you should expect to pay a real estate agent's fee of 2-3 months' rent (not a deposit, just the agent's fee).  

In addition, most apartment contracts require 2-3 months' rent as a deposit.  In most cases you will also have to pay an "Ablöse" in order to buy furniture or appliances which are already in the apartment (amount varies depending on what is furnished).

For more information about finding your own housing in Vienna:

  • The Student Support Service - The Webster Student Support Service was founded by students who themselves experienced the challenge of moving to another city and all the difficulties that are involved: finding an apartment, getting a new bank account, a phone contract and internet as well as organizing their leisure time such as finding a gym or good restaurants and organizing travels and enjoying cultural activities. The Student Support Service helps students with all those challenges in order to make them feel at home in Vienna as fast and safe as possible. By representing the Webster University as a whole, the Student Support Service managed to get various well-known companies in a big variety of fields as partners. These partners grant discounts and special offers exclusively to Webster students and Webster alumni.
