Together instead of alone
Our dormitory is situated in the north-eastern part of Graz, in a district called Mariatrost. A beautiful sunny and quiet location on the edge of the forest of Leechwald. Furthermore the dormitory has a good connection to public transport like trams, buses and bicycle paths. Therefore the centre of the city and the universities in Graz are easy to reach.
The dorm has 101 rooms and 8 small apartments. We offer students from all over Austria and approximately 20 different nations year-round student housing. The main aim of our work is to offer high quality of living, the promotion of interpersonal communication, a relaxed atmosphere, and good companionship.
