Accommodation in Linz

We can recommend some student residences: 

Raabheim - http://www.studentenwerk.at/site/en/linz 
Studierendenheim Pulvermühlstraße - http://www.akademikerhilfe.at/en/residences/linz/pulvermuehlstrasse-41/ 
If you want "luxury accommodation" the Studierendenheim Brucknerstudios - 
http://www.brucknerstudios.at/en/
Dr. Karl Grünner Haus - http://www.ooe-heimbauverein.at/en/unsere-standorte/dr-karl-grunner-haus/ 

If you want to organize your accommodation independently, this website could be helpful: http://www.wg-gesucht.de/en/wg-zimmer-in-Linz.330.0.1.0.html 

All residences have a version of their website in English language and online registration systems. Please register at these sites as soon as possible to be sure to get a room, and let us know in the respective questionaire (one step in your Mobility Online registration process at our university) what residence you choose. You can of course also organize your own accommodation. Please let us also know in the questionaire if you do so. The residences need a study confirmation of us to testify that you are a student. That's why we need to know who will stay where! If you book before you reach that step in Mobility Online just inform the residence that they will be studying with us and we will send the confirmation once you filled out the questionaire in Mobility Online.

Dr. Karl Grünner Haus: 

we don't have up to date information about that residence, but we used to cooperate with them intensively for a long time. It is very convenient concerning location, because it is within walking distance from the university (appr. 10 min). Check their website for payment options, because that used to get a bit complicated when they only accepted payment for a whole month, even if you arrived in the second half of the month. We've heard that the offer an option now if you move in like at the beginning of a new month, but arrive a bit before, that you can use their relatively cheap hotel option which they run in the same house. Of course Air B & B could also be an option to solve that problem.
