A home for students in a central location 

Subway lines U1, U2, U3, and U4, regional rail lines S1, S2, S3, S4, S7, and S80 plus CAT, R, and WESTbahn trains, tram lines 1, 2, D, 46, 49, 62, and 71, and bus lines 2A, 3A, 4A, 57A, and 59A.

… and of course the horse-drawn carriages at St. Stephen’s! ;-)

An advantage of living right at the center of Vienna is that you can get everywhere very quickly. Perfect for your daily student life: Most of the city’s universities are just a few stops away on public transportation. These include the University of Vienna along with its Altes AKH campus and its Faculty of Law, the Vienna University of Economics and Business, TU Wien, Vienna Medical University, the Academy of Fine Arts, and the University of Applied Arts. And right nearby is the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, while the Music and Arts University of the City of Vienna is just a few meters away.

When you turn off Kärntnerstraße onto Johannesgasse, you leave Vienna’s most touristy area behind you and find yourself amidst the old city’s well-preserved charm – students love this area. Curvy streets, small restaurants, and cute little shops. At the same time, you have the city’s rich cultural offerings – like the State Opera, the Hofburg, the Museumsquartier, the Albertina Museum, the Kunsthistorisches Museum, and the Naturhistorisches Museum, to name just a few – practically at the doorstep of your modern and affordable student housing in Vienna!

The public transit hub Wien Mitte provides access to regional rail service plus a direct connection to Vienna International Airport. And at the shopping center there, Wien Mitte – The Mall, you’ll find everything you need as well as supermarkets that stay open longer in the evening and are even open Sundays.

The Stadtpark and the Burggarten are popular places for students to sit out on the grass, to study, and to meet friends. And it’s an easy stroll to the Danube Canal: particularly during the summer months, this is a great place to enjoy cool drinks and dip your feet in the refreshing water.

Student housing in the centre of Vienna 

The fashionable home for students ÖJAB-Haus Johannesgasse in Vienna is quite an unusual student dorm for more reasons than just its exceptional location at the heart of Vienna. This heritage-protected building, built between 1734 and 1745 by Anton Erhard Martinelli, used to be an abbey of the Ursuline nuns. In 2013, it was completely renovated and adapted as a modern student accommodation.

This student living also contains the Antonio-Vivaldi-Saal, one of Vienna’s most beautiful concert venues. A peaceful green inner courtyard flanked by a sunroom provides a quiet place of retreat for students right at the center of town. Further baroque-era architectural gems in this building are the puppet theater “Theatrum Sacrum”, a confessional chapel, and the preserved apothecary of the original baroque abbey.

In the summertime, this building is run as the Apart Hotel “myNext Johannesgasse Apartments”.

House manager of the ÖJAB-Haus Dr. Rudolf Kirchschläger Coco Akdedian.House manager Coco Akdedian
  • My name is Coco Akdedian. As my name would suggest, I have Armenian roots. I came to ÖJAB as a student in 1989 and moved into the dormitory ÖJAB-Haus Niederösterreich 2 in Vienna – where I also volunteered until 1997. In 1998, I assumed management of ÖJAB-Haus Dr. Rudolf Kirchschläger. And since September 2018, I’ve been house manager at the dorm ÖJAB-Haus Johannesgasse. I’m now married and have one daughter and one son, and I like to spend my free time on football fields – if not playing for ÖJAB, then as a referee for the football league DSG-Diözesansportgemeinschaft or cheering on my son at his championship matches.  My motto in life: live and let live!
