Service for Incoming Students

Orientation Week 

To help you get settled into your life in Vienna and at FH Campus Wien, the International Office organizes an orientation week each semester for incoming students. It takes place one week before the start of the semester and offers you the opportunity to get to know your fellow students in advance. During the orientation week a combination of administrative support, social as well as cultural events awaits you (welcome dinner, movie night, registration with the authorities in Vienna, city tour, ...). 
The orientation week is free. Participation is highly recommended as it helps ensure a pleasant and smooth start to your semester or internship in Vienna. 

Culture Program 

Do you know the difference between a "Kapuziner", a "Verlängerten" and a "Melange"? If you want to get to know the Viennese coffee house culture, which has been a UNESCO heritage since 2011, and other sites in Vienna, sign up for the "Culture Program". 
The "Culture Program" consists of excursions, theoretical units and visits to cultural events to provide you with a multifaceted introduction to Viennese and Austrian history and the present. 
Together with other incoming students, you will take a tour with the oldest Ferris wheel in the world, explore Vienna’s sewer system in the footsteps of The Third Man, experience a performance at the Vienna State Opera and much more. 

Living in Vienna 

Choosing the right accommodation is essential to having an enjoyable and comfortable stay abroad. Vienna has a wide range of student residences and shared rooms, making it relatively easy to find adequate accommodation. Nonetheless, we strongly recommend you start looking for accommodations early (at least three months before your arrival).

When looking for accommodations, please note that FH Campus Wien has campuses at four locations!

Student Dormitories 

Rooms in student dormitories offer an uncomplicated way to get a fully equipped, yet inexpensive accommodation for a semester. Visit the online platform from OeAD-WohnraumverwaltungsGmbH. They offer rooms in various price ranges in dormitories throughout Vienna. You can look through the different offers on the homepage and book a suitable accommodation directly via the online registration
A somewhat cheaper alternative to the student dormitories offered by the OeAD-WohnraumverwaltungsGmbH are the dormitories of the Wirtschaftshilfe der Arbeiter*Innen Studierenden Österreichs (Wihast). Here, too, you can use the homepage to choose from various locations in Vienna and register for a place in one of the dormitories online. 

Private Accommodations

Shared apartments also offer a good opportunity to get to know other students and better experience life in Vienna. The Facebook group "International @ FH Campus Vienna" offers shared rooms and apartments to sublet for a semester. The ÖH bulletin board also lists a large selection of available shared rooms and apartments. If you decide on a private accommodation, be sure to inquire about the facilities for the room or apartment ahead of time and be careful if you are asked to transfer money in advance.  

The staff of the International Office will be happy to help you with your search for accommodations and are available to answer any questions. 

Want a Buddy? 

To help you prepare for your stay in Vienna and your studies at FH Campus Wien, you have the opportunity to get support from a buddy. Buddies are students from the degree programs at FH Campus Wien, who want to establish international contacts and are prepared to answer questions before and during your stay and help you get settled in well. 

If you want to benefit from the help and local expertise of a buddy, please tell us in your online application.  

German Courses 

Do you want to learn German or improve your German language skills during your stay? The Language Center of the University of Vienna offers a large selection of German courses. ERASMUS+ students receive a 20% discount on all German language courses. The International Office offers further financial support with a grant of € 200 upon presentation of the course confirmation.
