Student Life

In Hagenberg our active and well-connected student community is committed to an optimal study-life balance. The legendary summer and winter fests and our student parties are highlights in the busy campus calendar. And topping off this recreational program are spaghetti and cocktail nights, pub quizzes and concerts by student bands, who have their own rehearsal room. There are also numerous competitions including game and animation jams.

You also don't have to go far to satisfy your hunger between lectures or to party in the evening. With a good selection of restaurants and a canteen as well as a pub on campus, Hagenberg offers something for every taste and occasion.
