As for the accommodation, the campus of the Webster University in Vienna is at a 10-minute walking distance from the facility where lectures are held. It is located at the attractive location near the historical center of the city and the building, originally from 1826, was renovated completely in 2014. First-year undergraduate students are obliged to spend one year in the Webster campus. The reason for this is for the students to get familiar with the new system, lectures, the city and the amenities that are offered. The accommodation is adjusted to the student lifestyle and most of the students decides to stay in the campus all the way through their studies.
