High quality of living for successful studies.

Residence Donaufelderstraße 159, 1210 Vienna

Open since March 2012!

In May 2010 it was decided to convert the historical building „Altes Tauwerk“ in Donaufelderstraße into a modern residence for visiting scientists and lecturers as well as students and course participants.
STUWO’s new residence is situated directly alongside the campus of the University of Veterinary Medicine and there is a direct access to the university from the basement of the dorm. The extensively refurbished building offers a high degree of individual comfort for 32 occupants. The design of the spacious single rooms with integrated kitchen and bathroom makes it possible to combine several of them into a small apartment. The top-quality furniture and equipment is simply modifiable so that meeting special requests can be easily arranged with the management.
Use of the facilities (sauna, gym, two rehearsal rooms for musicians) in Haus Dückegasse, which is located directly opposite Donaufelderstraße, is free of charge. Parking space in the underground garage of Haus Dückegasse can be rented at a very reasonable price. This is a useful service offered by the management for single days as well as for longer periods.
