Student Life

Campus life

Linz is a vibrant place – busy during the day, plenty of cultural highlights and a great atmosphere in the many bars and restaurants in the evening The idyllic old alleys leading to the stylish main square are a great contrast to the contemporary art and virtual worlds to be found in the Ars Electronica Centre. The Landestheater, the Brucknerhaus, Lentos und the Design Centre provide a rich background for culture. Linz provides a wonderful infrastructure for the University of Applied Sciences – it is an ideal place to study intensively. In 2009, Linz was the Cultural Capital of the EU.

Sports facilities

People in Linz are pretty enthusiastic about sport, so there’s plenty for you to do whether you are an active or a passive sports fan. For example, you can go running, skating, Nordic walking or cycling along the Danube, in the northern Green Belt and the southern suburbs of Ebelsberg and Pichling. Some of the annual Linz Marathon participants train here.

For chillier days there are a multitude of good fitness and wellness clubs which often have special offers for students. You can dabble your toes (and swim) in the centrally situated Parkbad, in the Hummelhofbad in the south and in the Biesenfeld pool to the north of the town.
