Ten good reasons ...

True, the decision is not easy: private flat sharing, an apartment of your own, a private room or an accommodation unit at ISH? That is a hard choice to make. To help you with your decision, we have listed the following ten reasons to explain why so many students come to ISH every year.

First ...

For more than fifty years, ISH has been the THE place for student accommodation in Innsbruck. We know what students need and have created a residential facility that meets those needs.

Second ...

ISH attracts students from all over the world. The community experience and mutual respect play an important role. But there is no hubbub here, either. There are clear rules that everyone must respect to guarantee a positive atmosphere for study and leisure for all.

Third ...

ISH is so centrally located that most students are in their classes within 15 minutes. And all the local amenities like supermarkets, restaurants, cinema and so on can be reached on foot.

Fourth ...

ISH is service-oriented and works hard to ensure that students have optimum conditions for living, study and leisure. We are committed to an atmosphere in which residents feel at home. We always have an open ear for suggestions.

Fifth ...

ISH avoids words like "hall"  or "hostel". We call ourselves a "residence" For us, students are young adults, and it is not our task to educate them but to come to honest agreements with them so that everyone can enjoy life at ISH.

Sixth ...

Compared with normal halls or hostels, ISH offers various extras - like a separate kitchen, telephone and free Internet access in every accommodation unit, a fortnightly cleaning service for the critical areas of the kitchens and bathrooms, and the free use of leisure amenities. Residents can also rent a parking space for their car.

Seventh ...

At ISH students do not have to choose between privacy and community. They can have both! In addition to the common rooms, all residents have a private area which they can withdraw to at any time.

Eighth ...

ISH keeps administrative costs and the risks to students to a minimum and offers an attractive price-performance ratio. Electricity, water, refuse disposal, use of the leisure facilities, etc. are included in the residence fee. Our in-house technicians handle repairs and provide other services quickly and reliably. And yet the monthly charges are often well below what students pay on the private accommodation market. If you find that hard to believe, just take a look at our Leistungs- und Kostentabelle!

Ninth ...

We know that student life is not all work. Every semester our famous "Heimfest" is held, which is organised by the students themselves via their representatives. In addition, various events and courses are available at ISH throughout the year. They offer a welcome respite from everyday university life and promote a community feeling. The courses and events are also organised by the student representatives.

Tenth ...

Finally, we would like to point out that ISH is committed not only to the needs of its 680 students but also to those of the environment! From May to October, our solar panels deliver almost 100% of the energy needed to produce hot water. And the snuggy room temperatures in winter are the result of a modern central gas heating system.
