Who was Rudolf Kirchschläger, anyway? This dorm’s namesake served as Austria’s federal president from 1974 to 1986. Kirchschläger was a constant advocate of tolerance, humanity, and educational opportunities for young people, for which reason he was held in universally high regard.

The “spirit” of this low priced home for students  founding era has remained strong to this day. Students and young people from all Austrian provinces and from foreign countries – with over 18 nationalities represented – live here and both help and stand by each other whenever necessary.

The fashionable student accommodation ÖJAB-Haus Dr. Rudolf Kirchschläger was built in 1988 and co-financed by all of Austria’s provinces with support from all political parties.

During the summer, part of the student housing is run as one of the myNext Hotels, Apartments and Hostels.

  • It was in November 2005 that I arrived in Vienna to commence my studies. I’d originally planned to return to my home country of Bosnia after graduation. But I’ve now spent over a decade living in Vienna.  I began volunteering with ÖJAB back in 2014. And in 2018, I was offered and accepted the post of house manager at the dorm ÖJAB-Haus Dr Rudolf Kirchschläger.  My first degree is in political science, and I’m currently working on a master’s degree in international business administration.  In my free time, I love to go cycling. And I’m fond of all kinds of art, especially music, painting, literature, and film. My motto in life: Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.
