Dormitory Große Schiffgasse 12, 1020 Vienna

urban jungle

This residence can house up to 122 students.

The Große Schiffgasse is a cosy student residence with a central location in the heart of Vienna, between the danube canal with many bars and the Karmelitermarkt (market).

Our house was 2021 under renovation, so you can move into your fresh new room.  

If you like spending time outdoors, then you will really like this place. You can breathe freely in your own garden as well as in the Prater: Vienna’s central recreational park is right in front of your door. The dormitory itself offers communal kitchens, a lot of community rooms and a pretty relaxed vibe. 

The tube/subway is also nearby (U2, U4 Schottenring and U1 Schwedenplatz). 

The dorm is fully booked! #sorry

Dorm places that become available will only be given to home4students residents. Please also have a look at our other dorms! If you find a suitable one and book there, you can be put on the internal waiting list after you moved in.
