Schwarzes Rössl, Priesterhausgasse 6, 5020 Salzburg

At a glance

Our residence at Priesterhausgasse is situated in Salzburg's historical centre. The complete renovation in 2007/2008 was carried out with the goal to meet the latest technological standard while at the same time preserving the original style of the building. On request of the residents, for example, the typical country home furniture was carefully restored and is now used again, thus preserving the nostalgically charming atmosphere of the building. Now 95 students live at Priesterhausgasse, half of them in single rooms, half in twin rooms.

Rooms are allocated with a 9-month contract from October 1st to June 30th, as the residence is operated as a hotel from July to September. On request a limited number of rooms can be reserved for residents during the summer months as well.

Important information:

This student residence is fully booked for the winter term 2018/19.
