Accommodation in Salzburg

The University of Salzburg does not own any student residence halls and has no special agreements with accommodation providers. The International Relations Office can only help you in finding accommodation by providing the following information. We recommend that exchange students start looking for housing very early, as finding a suitable place to stay can take a substantial amount of time. Note: The University cannot be held responsible for any problems arising from the below mentioned suggestions.

Be careful not to fall victim to rental fraud with private landlords when making down payments.

DON’T trust this offer! This IS SCAM!!! Unfortunately, several cases of fraud have already been reported!!!

Extract from “contract” – DON’T accept!!!

Shared or private apartments


Temporary or short-term accommodation

Note for exchange students: If you don’t find suitable accommodation by means of the above mentioned services, you can of course come to Salzburg and stay in a youth hostel for the first few days. upon arrival you are likely to find a room in a shared appartment immediately. Although it might seem to be a risky method of searching for accommodation that late, most students succeed in finding a suitable place.

Youth Hostels

If you need temporary housing prior to moving into your confimed accommodation, the local youth hostels are an inexpensive alternative to hotels.
