Students & Youth
In 23 dormitories, ÖJAB offers young people high-quality, economically priced accommodation located near their education and training institutes. Students and youths from diverse backgrounds meet there. A warm, open and humane atmosphere in the hostel, consideration for each other and mutual helpfulness shape the communal life.
This is all made possible by ÖJAB’s special approach to running facilities for young people: the managers of the dormitories also live there and create a family-like, cozy surrounding and a „home away from home“ feeling.
The communal life is organized democratically by electing voluntary representatives for each floor and the whole dormitory.
To feel at home in an ÖJAB dormitory also involves many joint undertakings and projects, e.g. in the realm of sports, music, theatre, generations and social activities. They are usually supervised, initiated or actively promoted by the dormitory manager. In this way, friendships which last for a lifetime are made.
With its aims of arousing interest in cultural, social, economic, political and ecological questions and initiating global learning, ÖJAB is member of the Österreichische Bundesjugendvertretung (Austrian National Youth Council).
