Vienna Housing and Student Life

The ÖJAB Europahaus Dr. Bruno Buchwieser dormitory is located in Penzing, Vienna’s beautiful and green fourteenth district. The dormitory occupies five connected buildings surrounded by a large green field and the Miller-Aichholz castle. ÖJAB Europahaus provides students with superior comfort, practical convenience, and an engaging social atmosphere.

To create a community atmosphere and assure a supportive and caring environment for new students, all students accepted to the Webster Vienna undergraduate program (freshmen or transfer students) are required to spend their first academic semester living in the ÖJAB dormitory. Students who wish to stay longer can extend their contract on a semester basis.

Public transport:

Vienna's city center can easily be reached by public transportation.

Several bus lines need only 4 minutes to go to Railway station "Wien-Hütteldorf" from the bus station "Wolfersberggasse" which is directly in front of the entrance of ÖJAB-Europahaus Dr. Bruno Buchwieser.

The "Hütteldorf" station can be reached within approximately 10 minutes (short-cut through Ferdinand Wolf park) by foot. The underground U4 line goes directly to the Viennese city centre (Karlsplatz, Schwedenplatz,...), daily from 5:00 am until shortly after midnight. On the weekends the U4 line runs the whole night. Night buses  also stop near ÖJAB-Europahaus Dr. Bruno Buchwieser.

Another option is the tramway 49, station "Bujattigasse" (weekdays during the day all 3 to 5 minutes). However, the U4 metro is the quicker option to reach the city center.

Last but not least, many trains from the west of Austria make a stop at the railway station "Wien-Hütteldorf", even some international long distance trains.

Student Life in Vienna

Students contribute enormously to Webster’s vibrant campus and community through the generous volunteering of their time and energy for various activities and events. For example, students can help out with annual events such as  the Graduation Ceremony,  Thanksgiving Dinner, Holiday Evenings, SGA events, European Webster football tournament, Community Service Day (Webster Works Worldwide) and others. The Student Services team at Webster-Vienna can help you make the most of being in Vienna with information on the local area, activities and events across the city!
