In a typical student flat, several Austrian students live together. Spaces such as the kitchen or bathroom are shared. Here you are treated as a full member of the household. Going on outings or shopping together, you will learn a lot about Austria. The students you live with will be attending lectures at the university while you're going to your language course at the DeutschAkademie. In their free time most of our students are very active: they play sport, visit exhibitions or go to the theatre.
So accommodation in a student flat is most ideally suited if you don't want to give up your independence, but at the same time would like to have the chance to become quickly acquainted with many people.
True, no meals are provided, but you can prepare your meals yourself in the kitchen.
This form of accommodation is a good alternative to a host family or student residence. Here, living together imposes fewer obligations. How much you can put your newly acquired German-speaking abilities into practice here depends greatly on the daily habits of your Austrian flatmates. But in any case they will gladly help you with your homework.
