Vienna (Wien) erasmus

by swien » Sun Feb 13, 2011 3:02 pm

To make it short - Vienna is a great city!
I studied on WU (Vienna University of Economics and Business) - its a great university. It requires that you work along with the study, but dont worry, you can still party :)
If you will go to Wien I recommend Haus Erazmus student campus because it is mainly populated with erasmus students - so you will not be "alone" if you're going by yourself :)
In this campus you will meet alot of USA folk, Canadians, Chinese people.. BUT!! if you wanna learn german language then I suggest that you go to Panorama or Haus Europa student campus. This campus are popular, so I suggest you send an aplication before you go. The rooms in all campuses are really big - you can choose 1bed room or 2beds room - all rooms have free internet, wc, fridge. Kitchen is common for all rooms on the floor. The campuses also have their fitness, sauna, study rooms...
For travelling around - underground is the best, but you also have bus and tramcar. You can buy a semester ticket - costs 117€ and is valid for whole semester.
Food is good, but i suggest you make some food at home - its the cheapest and healthiest way ;) Otherwise lunch costs around 5-7€.
So my expenses were something like this: accomodation: 240€ per month, semester ticket 117€ (per 6 months), study material 20€ per month, nightlife - well depends on you ;)

Hello swien,

Maybe you saw my thread, since that I'm going to Vienna for Erasmus Exchange for next semester, I'm looking for accomodation -- mostly dormitories.

I noticed you mentioned three of the dormitories and that all three of them were on my shortlist, I'd like to ask you about them in detail?
Beside the information you'll give me, I'd like to ask you that if you happy in Haus Erasmus? Was there anything that bothered you minorly/majorly?
What other dormitories would you recommend? Or any tips?

Thank you so much in advance, I'd appreciate it. Anything you say might help me decide.

Best,
Sarp

Hello.
I stayed in Haus Erazmus, so I can't say much for other two dormitories, but collegues told me that they are both great, so I think you can't go wrong with either on of them. As far as Haus Erazmus dormitory is concerned I can tell you it is also a very good dormitory. And it is quite cheap for what you will get. It is only 240€ per month, but for that you get a lot of comfort. You will most likely get a foreign room-mate too, I hope that is not a problem for you :) In Haus Erazmus you have sauna, fitness and what is really great - rooms where you can study in peace! I studied a lot in study rooms, because it was usually quite loud because of parties and people chatting on halls, kitchens. You know how it goes :)
Take a look here, I found you a video tour of a room in haus erasmus :)
