In Austria, each university has a student union to look after students’ interests. All students have to pay the Austrian Student Union (Österreichische Hochschülerschaft, ÖH) fee and will automatically become a member of the student union. The university student unions have a national umbrella organization - the National Austrian Student Union.
The Austrian National Union of Students is located at Taubstummengasse 7-9 in Vienna. They offer advice and guidance on many different topics and also a variety of helpful brochures.
Student union membership entitles you to a variety of student discounts – and student unions also organise many different activities for you to take part in.
