The student residence of the City of Vienna through the ages

We start our report on the 60th anniversary with the founding year 1963. The strong increase in the number of students, especially from abroad, led to an extreme shortage of student accommodation at the end of the 1950s. The City of Vienna therefore decided to build the “Haus Döbling” with 364 single rooms in place of the Kuffner Villa in 1963 according to plans by the architect Fred Freyler. At that time, there were 140 rooms for women and 224 for men. The rooms were booked immediately. Artists such as Hubert Aratym, Wolfgang Hutter, Kurt Moldovan and Joannis Avramidis were chosen for the artistic decoration. The student residence „Haus Döblilng“ went into operation at the beginning of the winter semester 1963/64.
