The residence Am Gießen used to be an girls' boarding school run by the Ursulines in Innsbruck, and is now run by Akademikerhilfe as a student residence.
It particularly boasts bright, friendly rooms. All rooms are south-facing and some even have their own balcony. The building also has many communal rooms for cooking, learning or chatting together and is just a short walk away from the centre and from the universities. Barrier-free rooms are available in the residence.
