Accommodation in Steyr

Student Residences

Industrial-chic accommodation close to the Steyr campus

From winter semester 2021, around 90 students will be able to live in style during their studies right next to the University of Applied Sciences. Student life is thus moving into the former weapon wheel factory.

The listed building X at Blumauergasse 26 in Steyr is being revitalized by "Familienwohnbau" in close cooperation with the Federal Monuments Office and the Steyr Old Town Conservation Department and will be used as a student residence in future.

The 87 places are spread over 3 floors in the main wing. Most of the rooms are so-called "duplex units": the single rooms are accessible via a shared anteroom with kitchenette and dining area. The courtyard and the adjoining water wing - idyllically situated on the so-called "Gsangwasser" - are used as common areas.

The student residence impresses with its proximity to the campus of Steyr University of Applied Sciences, modern residential units with industrial chic and an all-inclusive package (rent, operating costs, heating, internet).

GSA Wohnbauträger GmbH, based in Linz, is the developer's representative. GSA coordinates the cooperation between the client, construction company, architect and building authorities.
