Room for study groups

An important aspect in your studies is the exchange with fellow students. To give study groups the opportunity to meet in person despite the current restrictions, the University offers them seminar rooms to work in study groups.

Students of the University of Vienna can book time slots in the seminar rooms in the Main Building for their study groups and can use them free of charge for personal exchange.
