Housing

Accommodation at MODUL University Vienna

MU Students live in both private and uni-arranged accommodation.  Like most other Austrian universities, MU does not have its own student residence. Instead, MODUL has a contract with two local private student accommodation providers - WIHAST and BASE 19.

Exchange students always stay in WIHAST dorms.

For more information on the dorms, please download the MU Accommodation sheet.

How to Book a Room:  

  • Once you are accepted and confirm your spot by transferring over your first tuition installment, MODUL University Vienna’s Student Service Center will gladly help you further with accommodation booking. 
  • When an accommodation reservation is made by sending your information to the SSC, your details will be sent directly to the housing provider, whose office will send you a contract and payment details. 
  • Please note: contracts with both housing providers begin at the start of the calendar month and pro-rated contracts are not typically issued. The contract you sign is between you and the housing provider, not between you and MU.  Therefore, after the reservation process, MU has a reduced role with regard to your accommodation.
  • Base19 only has limited rooms available in spring.

      ROOMS WILL BE RESERVED ON A FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED BASIS!
