Innsbruck has a long history as a university town and offers a variety of housing options including student dormitories, private rooms, and shared apartments. Prices vary depending on size, location, and equipment.

The Austrian Agency for International Mobility and Cooperation in Education, Science, and Research (OeAD) arranges rooms in student dormitories for a small monthly fee. This is the easiest and most convenient way for exchange students to find relatively inexpensive housing.

MCI cooperates with the dormitory “Internationales Studentenhaus” (ISH). Exchange students can also book a room at ISH via MCI. Finding private accommodation in Innsbruck is not always easy, especially at the beginning of a new semester. Nevertheless, students who are willing to invest considerable effort may be able to find a room in a shared or a studio apartment.

If students need a place to stay for a few days, they can book a reasonably priced room in one of the following youth hostels: You will also find further information on housing here.
