The buddy that will be assigned to you can help with getting your key beforehand.

Very big student residence close to Johannes Kepler University Campus, but far away from city centre (North side of Danube). Very good facilities like 24 hour reception, restaurant. Pricewise higher than Don Bosco or Pulvermühlstraße. Distance to university: 5 km, public transport available (one change).
Dr. Karl Grünner Haus:
Rather simple, but very convenient concerning location, because it is within walking distance from the university (appr. 10 min). Remark 2022: WIFI not too good as up to now, but university with good WIFI connection nearby in walking distance.
STUWO Student Housing Linz:
Totally new, we don't have any experience. Looks great, but because it's near the main Johannes Kepler University campus, it's a bit out of town. Good tram connection although and nice cycle pathes, mostly along the Danube. Traveltime to PHOÖ appr. 40 min. Facilities look perfect, so if you value comfort, we suppose that's a great new option.
Please make sure to book your room early enough, because availability might be limited!
