Welcome to the Canisianum student residence

Have you always wanted to live in an impressive, history-steeped building?
You have the opportunity to do so at the Canisianum, as the former seminary in a neo-Romanesque style has been run as a student residence since October 2013. Besides cosy bedrooms and many communal rooms, the magnificent entrance to the building, in particular, speaks for itself! Located in the heart of Innsbruck, you are also just a few minutes’ walk from most universities and many lovely little places.

The house was completely renovated in 2021/22. Since October 2022, students have been able to live and study in the student residence Canisianum.
