Here we have summarized three tips for finding accommodation in Vienna to make it easier for you to find accommodation as a student.

The classic: The student flat share in Vienna

Everyone knows them at least from stories or film & television: The student flat share. One likes to imagine a group of friends or strangers who have become friends for life, resulting in a sustainable (and hopefully harmonious) living community. People come and go – the discussion about the cleaning plan remains.

This makes flat sharing in Vienna the ultimate tip against homesickness if you have just moved to the new city.

The Commitment: Your own apartment in Vienna

If you prefer it quiet and without discussions about cleaning plans, you can also get your own apartment in Vienna. Especially if you want to stay longer in the city or can even imagine life as a Viennese after your studies, having your own apartment in Vienna is the right thing for you. But here too there are a few things to consider.

Having your own apartment is definitely not the cheapest option for students. It requires good preparation and research to avoid digging too deep in your pockets. Your student budget will thank you! Here, too, the Internet is a useful assistant. For example, looking for an apartment in Vienna can be easier if you leave it to the professionals and look for a good real estate agent.

However, if you want to save the commission, you can browse wellknown housing exchanges and social media groups for the “perfect match”. The city of Vienna also offers affordable council housing, which can be viewed on the city’s website. If you want to save time, nerves and above all money, you should look for furnished apartments in Vienna.

Of all the options we mentioned, searching for your own apartment in Vienna will probably take the most time. You should therefore look around and inform yourself in good time. With the right nose, you will definitely find the right offer for your first apartment in Vienna.

Safe and flexible: The student residence in Vienna

The advantage of student residences is definitely that they are already fully furnished and the house is usually equipped with leisure and lounge rooms.
