Accommodation and Food
The university town of Graz provides students with a variety of accommodation possibilities. Depending on individual requirements, students can choose from a wide range of student hostels, apartment sharing, rented or freehold properties. In any case, students should begin early enough with the search for suitable accommodation. Rooms in student hostels are particularly rare and require certain registration procedures.
Around the university campus, there are the so-called Mensae or students’ restaurants at university. They offer students quick and affordable meals. Students who are eligible for a study grant or whose previous year’s net income does not exceed 10,000 euros are entitled to the so-called Mensa stamp which is available at the office of the Austrian Students’ Union. With it, they receive a discount on daily meals. In addition, there is a number of cafés and restaurants in the vicinity of the University of Graz and on the campus which also offer affordable midday meals and snacks.
