Finding a comfortable place to live is important. Around Innsbruck you can privately rent a studio, an apartment, or a room in a student dorm. Most short-term international students (i.e., exchange students) book a room in a dorm with the help of OeAD’s local housing office. OeAD is the Austrian Agency for International Mobility and Cooperation in Education, Science and Research. Their local housing office in Innsbruck has agreements with student dorms across the city. Alternatively, you can directly book a room at the dorm of your choice. To do so, please apply for a room very early – dorms fill up very fast, especially in the fall semester. Students can expect to pay $400-$600 on rent per month, not including meals.
