Thomas Morus, a KHG Residence

The Thomas Morus student residence owned by the Katholische Hochschulgemeinde has been fully renovated and re-opened in October 2017. The 95 fully furnished rooms impress above all with their modern equipment. In addition, there are good public transport connections and the Danube leisure, which is practically around the corner! Immerse yourself in community life at Thomas Morus Heim.

The Katholische Hochschulgemeinde offers a special service at this location for residents interested in the faith! You can find more information about this on the KHG website. The KHG Chaplains may require an interview with applicants. Therefore Akademikerhilfe will forward your name, email and telephone to KHG.
