How do I get a room in FOX 54?

Under the section on “How to book“, you can send us a message. We will then send you all the important information such as the rental agreement, House Rules, application form etc. As soon as we have received all the signed documents back from you, you will be a member of the FOX 54 community!

Is there a selection process to choose students for FOX 54?

No, we are not in receipt of any public funding so we do not have to carry out a selection process. We will process the enquiries in exactly the order in which we receive them. As soon as we are fully booked we will start a waiting list. This will also be processed in chronological order, as we want to deal with your enquiries fairly.

What kind of room requests can I make?

Please tell us whether you want to live alone or with someone else (and whether you prefer a male or female flatmate). We will try to take account of all your wishes as best we can. Please also tell us if you need an accessible room.

What can I do if my preferred room/apartment is no longer available?

We will be happy to add you to our waiting list. As soon as an apartment becomes free, we will contact you. The waiting list will be processed in chronological order so that all enquiries are handled fairly.

Where can I find the prices?

You’ll find the prices under the menu item “Prices“.

What is included in my rent?

The rent covers the charge for using a fully furnished room/apartment, using the communal areas and bike room, all running costs, VAT, Internet and TV charges, and basic cleaning once a month.

How do I pay my rent?

The rent must be transferred to our account IBAN AT84 4239 0030 0000 8599 (BIC VBOEATWWINN) with the Volksbank Tirol AG, in the name of Edinger Studentenheim GmbH, at the start of every month (by the 5th of the month at the latest). It is best if you set up a standing order with your bank.

Why does a room at FOX 54 cost more than in other student accommodation?

FOX 54 cannot be compared with an ordinary student hall of residence. We would be delighted if you have the time to visit our show apartment. That’s the best way to find out why FOX 54 is truly unique student accommodation. The facilities are more like those in a boutique hotel than a student residence, the rooms are much larger and we have invested a great deal in designer furniture to create this extremely high-quality accommodation.
We don’t promise the lowest price, we promise quality accommodation and our prices include exclusive services (see also “Free services“). Why not come and see for yourself!

Do I have to pay a deposit, how much is it, what is it used for and when do I get it back?

Yes. A one-off deposit of EUR 1,100 is due when you sign the contract.
We retain the deposit to cover any unpaid rent or any damage that is caused in your room/apartment.
At the end of the contract we transfer the deposit back to you. Please note that any outstanding rent or costs will be deducted from the total.

What if I want to extend my contract after one year?

Your rental agreement is always valid for one year. We would be delighted if you want to extend your contract. Please let us know at least two months before the end of the contract. You can simply extend your contract by emailing

What do I have to remember at the end of the contract?

The procedure is covered in your rental agreement.

From which month will the building be ready for students to move in?

The project will be completed by the end of August 2017 and the rental agreement will start from 1 October 2017. However, you are welcome to move in from early September because the building will be vacant. You will not be charged for that month.

Is my room cleaned?

We do the cleaning for you once a month.

Are Internet and TV available?

WiFi is available throughout FOX 54 and there is a LAN connection in your room. Rooms are all fitted with a Samsung Serif 32-inch TV with numerous functions. You can find more information here:

What do I need to bring with me?

Apart from your clothes and personal things, all you need to enjoy your first few nights within your own four walls at FOX 54 are bed linen, a towel and a toothbrush. The kitchen only contains basic equipment, but you can buy everything else locally.

What do I need to remember when I move in?

When you move in, we will go through all the fixtures and fittings together. There will be an inventory that both parties will sign. That will serve as a record for you and for us, so that there are no awkward conversations about damage when you move out.

Do I need to register with the City of Innsbruck?

Yes, anyone who lives in Austria for some time must register with the relevant authorities. We will prepare the form for you, so all you have to do is fill in your details, sign it and take it to the Town Hall (Office for Registration and Residents’ Affairs, 1st floor). You can find their contact details and opening hours here:–politik/buergerservice–buergerbueros/buergerservice

When you move out, please don’t forget to de-register.

Can I have friends to stay overnight?

Of course! In the single-occupancy apartments you can do that at any time. Unlike in other student residences, you don’t need to register overnight guests with us. But if you are in shared accommodation, we ask you to agree it with your flatmate first. Please note that the rooms have not been designed for long-term use by two people.

What do I have to do if any damage occurs in my apartment?

Please let us know by email immediately and we will arrange a repair as soon as possible.

What documents do I have to sign and hand in for FOX 54?

A rental agreement, the House Rules, the T&Cs and the inventory. We’ll make sure that you receive all those documents from us in good time.
