are living in our student residences


We are a non-profit organization

That means we serve the common good, earnings flow back to our residents.

We are free of political influence.

The foundation is self-funded

There is no funding from the government or from private donors. Nothing at all – seriously

With great power comes great responsibility.

Every residence elects residence representatives who represent the interests of the residents. The chairperson of all the residence reps represents their interests in the board of trustees.

We were founded by the Austrian Students’ Union.

On 9 July 1959 the first meeting of the board of trustees started the foundation’s work.

Currently, 65% of our staff
are women and 35% are men

The highest organ of the foundation is the board of trustees – the executive organ is the management board

The composition of the board of trustees reflects a closeness to the university: 73% are members of the Austrian Students’ Union (group numbers depending on the results of the Austrian Students’ Union election), university professors and the others are various experts

In 2007, the brand name “home4students” was launched

Former mayor of Vienna, Michael Häupl, lived in a home4students residence during his studies – "man bringe den Spritzwein" ("Bring on the spritzer" is a saying he coined)

We remain loyal
