Campus Linz

Life is not just for work and studying – you need time to relax and enjoy yourself. Linz provides a lot of opportunities for you to do this Linz is an excellent place to go shopping, even for students on a limited budget!.

In the centre of the town, Landstrasse is a great place to shop. Give yourself time to explore the side-streets, too – particularly the stretch  Bischofsstraße – Spittelwiese along to Herrenstraße is sprinkled with the kind of speciality shop that you can never find in big shopping centres.

    Steyr has a lot to offer, from live-music at the farmer’s market, summerly outdoor cinema fun or sports activities in and around Steyr: it’s a busy time with a lot of offers for everyone. This is the reason why being a student in Steyr also means taking part in funny parties, participating in the “Boatmania” – the craziest boatmania in Austria – regular events, cosy pubs and bars and enough time to get to know each other. Many events, concerts, different markets etc make your visit to Steyr a remarkable one.
