Studentenheim Untere Schönbrunngasse 7-11, 8043 Graz

At a glance

The "Schoenbrunn" residence was planned with a focus on providing a pleasant atmosphere and enabling community life. As a result the 230 places were divided into three blocks with a kitchen lounge on each floor in order to minimize the size of the floors and at the same time improve community facilities. The "Schoenbrunn" residence is situated in a large park and connected to the universities and the centre by excellent public transport.

Rooms are assigned on a 12-month basis.
