Smart Living

The STUWO Smart Living has an innovative concept. We offer you the space to live in your own flat or shared flat. Our apartments are generally unfurnished, so that you can design it according to your preferences. You can either live in your own single apartment or move into a bigger apartment with your friends. Interior design is not your strong suit? No worries, we also have partially furnished single apartments with balconies.

The garden, rooftop terrace and party room give you the opportunity to relax, enjoy nature and celebrate with friends and other residents. A special feature: Animal flatmates are welcome in the STUWO Smart Living! You absolutely can bring your dog or cat. Musicians and music newbies will be greatly satisfied with the music rehearsal rooms in STUWO Smart Living.


STUWO StudentCity is based on the classic model for a dormitory, but spices it up with a modern twist. You can choose between single and multiple-room apartments. So far, so classic. The following STUWO benefits make us unique. The green courtyard is a well of relaxation. There is also a party room for amazing student parties.

We’ve got you covered when it comes to relaxation with our in-house wellness area. Located next to the main train station, the public transport connections are great. There are many parks nearby to offer you some relaxation outside after university.

Art lovers, listen up: STUWO StudentCity is ideal for you because it is the event location of the annual Urban Art Festival Styria! Not only is the dormitory the host, but also part of the art!
