Attractive campus in charming surroundings
The FH Kufstein resides in a building that contains modern lecture rooms and work spaces, a library and a cafeteria.

Also, the employees of the International Relations Office support students in respect to their studies abroad and internships.
As far as accommodation is concerned, the International Student Residence is one option open to students. The student-friendly City of Kufstein also offers a wide choice of privately-owned apartments – from single rooms to shared flats. In Kufstein stores, banks, health facilities and public services are all close by and the public transportation system makes getting from one place to another easy.
With regards to leisure time activities, there are countless possibilities that can be taken advantage of in Kufstein and its surroundings. In the summer, our students enjoy doing sports such as jogging, mountain biking, climbing, rafting, and swimming. The winter brings on skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, ski touring, sledding and much more. For those students who are interested in a varied cultural program, there are, for example, the broad regional offerings as part of the Tirolean Summer and the famous passion play in Erl. The nearby cultural centers of Innsbruck, Salzburg and Munich extend the spectrum of events even further.
