High quality of living for successful studies.

Student residence Auf der Schmelz 12, 1150 Vienna

Open since October 2013

In the winter term of 2013 we opened a new dorm in Vienna’s 15th district, which is located at “Auf der Schmelz” (in cooperation with MIGRA). The area is a popular and well-known urban green space and recreation area and is well-connected with the public transport system of “Wiener Linien” (underground station U3 – Johnstraße, bus lines 10A, 12A and 63A). It is also situated directly next to the sports centre of Vienna University (USZ) and the sports facilities of ASKÖ.
At this modern student residence, we offer about 206 dorm places mostly for sports students. Furthermore it was STUWO’s intention to provide suitable barrier-free accommodations for handicapped sports students and to help them achieve their sports goals.
Our apartments – most of them composed of two single rooms sharing a vestibule with integrated kitchenette, shower and toilet – are furnished according to modern standards and offer Internet and cable-TV for free. To complete our service, the house includes a sauna and fitness facilities without charge.

Location and Surroundings

Our residence “Auf der Schmelz” is situated in the middle of Vienna in an idyllic low-density area, surrounded by grassland and sports facilities. In the planning and building process of the residence high priority was given to creating harmonious surroundings. The low-energy house with three levels is not only offering student accommodation but also indoor sports facilities such as a gym hall, a bowling alley, changing rooms, a shop for sports articles and a cafeteria. The attractive outdoor facilities (provided by ASKÖ) are supplemented by a climbing wall on one of our house walls. The “Schutzhaus”, a popular restaurant and event location, is just 3 minutes’ walk from the residence.
The Institute for Sports of Vienna University (Auf der Schmelz 6a) is just 5 minutes away. With the underground line U3 and the buses 10A, 12A, 63A the connection to public transport is guaranteed. You can reach the inner city of Vienna as well as all important universities – University of Vienna, University of Economics (WU), Technical University of Vienna (TU) – within 35 to 40 minutes by public transport.
The event location “Stadthalle” is within 13 minutes’ walking distance. In another 5 minutes you can reach “Lugner-City” (near Urban-Loritz-Platz, which can also be reached by the underground line U6). “Lugner City” offers a wide range of shops as well as a cinema, restaurants etc.).
