OeAD Housing Office
International students  may use the services of the Austrian Exchange Service to apply for housing. We recommend reserving a room as soon as possible. This can be done online via the OeAD Internet database. In order to book a room, a security deposit  of € 950 is required: Only after the full amount of the deposit  has been posted into the bank account of the OeAD will a reservation be seriously considered. Therefore, make sure you send enough funds to cover both the amount of the full deposit and the transaction fee charged by banks.

Rooms and Furnishings
The OeAD Housing Office facilitates student housing possibilities in ten student residences across the City of Salzburg, with each residence having its own categories of accommodatons ranging in price from € 230,00 to 385,00.

Student Residence Halls in Salzburg
The University of Salzburg does not own any dormitories or guest houses for students to live in during their time here. Therefore, if you want to stay in a student dormitory, you will have to contact the dormitory(ies) directly.
