Our Team

The main aim of our work as a team is the promotion of interpersonal communication, a relaxed atmosphere, and good companionship. Students from different countries with various religious beliefs have made our dormitory an intercultural meeting place. At present, we accommodate students from 20 different countries throughout the whole year.

Our Staff

Mag. Lillan Pirkl-Henriksen

The Norwegian Lillan Pirkl-Henriksen has been in charge of the international dormitory Johannes-Kepler dormitory since 1998.

“My main priority is that students feel comfortable in our dormitory. Thanks to our helpful team, the modern facilities and the green and quiet location, we are able to offer students a “new” home where they can relax in a pleasant atmosphere after their day at university. Due to the international residents, students are able to build up friendships all over the world.”
