Rooms with a view at the student residence Pfeilgasse 3a Pfeilgasse 3a, 1080 Wien

Studying with an outlook: thanks to the height of the building, the student residence at Pfeilgasse 3a offers a wonderful view of the city. The student residence offers space for around 400 students in 360 single and 20 twin rooms. It is the largest residence in the Pfeilgasse complex, where around 860 students live in one place in the three Akademikerhilfe residences. The large roof terrace invites you to relax. Here, too, the panorama makes it clear: the centre of Vienna is really close enough to touch.

In the heart of the 8th district – this means in the centre of Vienna and close to many universities and universities of applied sciences! Most are just a short walk away, and it is even quicker with public transport. The tram lines 46 and 2, bus 13A, and the underground lines U2 and U3 can be reached directly from the residence. The 8th and neighbouring 7th districts offer the surroundings that many students dream of: cafés and bars, clubs and local hotspots, lovingly run fashion stores and small designer shops are waiting to be discovered!
