  8. WIFI is available in your apartments. You must accept the general Internet usage rule described in Rule 9.
  9. Using the internet provided in your home to upload, download, or stream illegal content is strictly prohibited. Austria is very strict with this and it is possible that you will be fined.
  10. No candles in the apartment. Yes, they smell good, but an apartment in flames smells worse.
  11. Take care of the things provided in your housing – damaged or missing items will have to be repaired/replaced and you will be charged for the costs through your landlord.
  12. If issues with apartment keys and locks arise (such as a key breaks off in a lock, the lock no longer functions, you cannot enter/exit your room or building, etc.), contact your landlord or emergency phone immediately.
  13. Report any already existing damages in your housing at the check in. Check outlets, window panes, beds, heaters, scratches or dents in the walls, etc. Otherwise, it may result in you incurring extra damage fees that you weren’t actually responsible for.
  14. You take full responsibility for any visitors that you bring to your housing facility. This includes any kind of damage caused to housing1050 as well as disturbing your fellow CEU students and neighbors.
  15. You are not allowed to touch or manipulate the fire/smoke detectors in your housing. If you believe it to be broken, please report it immediately.
  16. No smoking in the apartments. Our fire alarm system is pretty delicate, so the smoking ban includes smoking out of the window.
  17. Never cook food on the stovetop unattended, and keep a close eye on food baking inside the oven. Fire alarms will be activated, which may lead to extra charges.
  18. Maintenance work will be carried out in your housing facility as needed. You will be informed every time in advance so that it will not take you by surprise. 

The following provisions serve the purpose of all residents being able to use the available internet connection optimally.

As soon as a new version is published, all previous versions will lose their validity.

Every resident commits to observe and follow these rules for use. A violation of the rules can lead to the loss of the internet access or the loss of the residence place.

Zoom provides you with a Wi-fi connection in your apartment. The hardware and software used by you is your responsibility. Zoom will not be liable for damages due to network software, viruses or attacks from the network (e.g. hacker attacks, misuse of data etc.).

  1. Access identification

Access details that you receive in connection with your internet use must never be passed on to third parties.

  1. Legal regulations

Every resident is to observe the legal regulations in connection with internet use. Any illegal internet use (e.g. activities with racist, sexist, or discriminating content, child pornography or glorification of violence, software or music piracy etc.) is expressly forbidden. The resident can be made responsible and liable for any incurred damages to Zoom Entertainment GmbH in the context of their internet use.

  1. Duration of use

The internet access is made available only for residents and only for the duration of the stay in the student residence.

    available infrastructure (access points, routers, switches etc.) is expressly forbidden.
  • The resident commits to using an up to date virus protection software.
  • Only the operation of access points of Zoom Entertainment GmbH are allowed.

If maintenance works by the internet provider or to the infrastructure are necessary, we will inform you in advance, provided that these works are foreseeable and not the result of an emergency.

  1. Interferences

If any interferences to the internet connection occur, we ask that you in the first instance check all devices (including cables) and the settings of the devices (settings of the network adapter) – other residents will usually be happy to help.

If it is not possible to solve the problem in this way, we ask that you inform Zoom Entertainment GmbH of the interference.

We request that you describe the problem as accurately as possible (e.g. does the problem only occur on one device, do other residents have the same problem, on which day and at which time did the problem occur, how long did it last etc.) – the more information we receive, the easier it will be to find the cause of the problem and solve it.

If the interference is connected with the infrastructure, the student residence is responsible for fixing it. If the interference is caused by a malfunctioning of a device used by yourself, or harmful hardware or software or a user error, you are yourself responsible for fixing the problem.

  1. Data protection/content filtering

Currently, neither content nor services are blocked. However, we reserve the right to undertake content filtering and logging – under the obligation to adhere to legal provisions, especially concerning data protection.

How can I apply for accommodation?

You can apply online in just a few steps. We need an application form for each person with your personal email address.

Can I see the room before I move in?

Due to the nature of student housing, it is not always possible to look at an apartment prior to moving in. Unfortunately a room cannot be shown if it is currently occupied by students, if it is under construction or being renovated for an incoming student. However, we provide information and pictures of the accommodation, so you can get a general impression of the rooms.

Is an accommodation guaranteed after I have applied?

Booking follows the first-come, first-served principle. After we have received the application form and once the application fee has reached our account, we can progress your application. If accommodation is available, you will receive a legally binding offer.

How do I confirm the booking?

You will receive an offer for accommodation which includes the residence contract and house rules, as well as a request for payment of the deposit by an appropriate deadline set by us. Once the deposit has reached our account before the specified deadline, the offer for accommodation has been accepted and the residence contract is legally binding on both parties.

Why do I have to pay a deposit?

The deposit is used as security for possible damages. Without a deposit the offer for accommodation is not accepted and the contractual relationship between us cannot be established. Please note that bank fees (including Austrian banks) may be incurred! The deposit does not cover the first accommodation fees, those fees have to be paid separately.

How much is the deposit?

We will let you know the exact amount of the deposit when we send through your offer for accommodation. The amount can vary due to location and accommodation type. In general, the deposit amounts to a maximum of two months accommodation fee.

Is there a deadline for paying the deposit?

Yes – please note, that paying the deposit is your confirmation of the agreement.

Will I get my deposit back?

Your deposit will remain with Zoom Housing until the end of your booking period. The deposit is not automatically refunded to you.
The deposit is to be returned immediately after the end of the tenancy and return of the apartment. However, a reasonable period of time must be allowed for the landlord to inspect the rented property so that he can get an idea of any damage and obtain cost estimates for repairs.

EU-citizens with EURO-accounts:

The money transfer of the deposit is free of charge for EU-citizens  (within the European monetary Union)  when the IBAN and SWIFT-Code is entered. Therefore we kindly ask you to send us your banking details.

After the final room check the deposit (minus possible fees for damages and outstanding payments) can be transferred back to you. If all bank details have been entered correctly, the remaining  deposit amount will be transfered back to your account within a maximum of 6 weeks.

Citizens outside the European Union / EU-citizens without EURO-account:

The transfer of the deposit for non-EU-citizens is subject to fees.  The payment of the deposit can only be made after a room check is completed. Please be informed that damages cannot be calculated on the day of moving out. In the case of non-EU-citizens (EU-citizens outside the monetary Union), it will be necessary to send bank details via email.

Please note that we need a confirmation of your de-registration from the accommodation in order to return the deposit.

My booking has not started yet. Can I cancel my contract?

Please submit your cancellation request via email only (

If you inform us of your cancellation more than 2 months before the start of your booking period (as per the residence contract) nothing will be charged.

If you inform us of your cancellation between 1 and 2 months before the start of your booking period (according to the residence contract), the amount of one monthly accommodation fee will be charged.

If you inform us of your cancellation less than 1 month before the start of your booking period (according to the residence contract) the full deposit amount already paid will be charged.

My booking has already started. May I still terminate the contract?

To terminate the residence contract before the original end date: a request must be submitted in writting. (

What do I have to bring for moving in?

Please always bring your passport or ID with you.

When and where can I pick up the key for my accommodation?

You can pick up the key during the office hours of Zoom Housing office. Moving in is only possible as of the day of your booking from 4pm onwards.

I will arrive outside the office hours or during the weekend. May I still move in?

Please note the office hours for key-pickup on the information sheet. Should you arrive outside the office hours, please send us an email and we will prepare a keysafe for you.

What happens if I lose the keys?

Please always take care of your keys :) If a key is lost for accommodation, please let us know immediately. We will then arrange a change of lock. Unfortunately we do have to charge a fee of EUR 350.00 which has to be paid in cash at the Zoom Housing office. We will then provide you with a replacement key.

What happens if I lock myself out of the room?

Please get in touch with us immediately! In the evening, at night or on a weekend there is unfortunately no staff member available, so you would need to commission a locksmith and bear the costs yourself.

When and where do I have to pay the accommodation fee?

You will receive detailed information regarding the terms of payment by email. Basically, the first month‘s accommodation fee, is due by the 5th of the first month of occupation, as shown in the residence contract.
If you have not received any other instructions, please arrange a bank transfer.

Your transfer must include either your name or invoice number. Otherwise your payment cannot be connected to you.
We also accept one-off payments, especially to avoid bank fees if you are transferring from a non-SEPA account – please inform us in time.
The accommodation fee must be paid for the full calender month, even if the contract duration and/or duration of use differs.

What happens if I don’t pay on time?

If you are not able to pay the accommodation fee by the 5th of the month, a warning will be issued. For every payment warning issued, a fee of EUR 25.- will be charged.

Please note that repeated warnings might lead to the dissolution of the residence contract.

Why do you not accept any credit card payments?

Unfortunately we do not accept any credit card payments for paying the accommodation fee. Kindly note that this is to avoid increasing fees by 3% to cover the charge required by the credit institute for credit card payments.

Please check the following options for transfering money:

They are online accounts with credit cards. They don’t charge for opening an account and making international transfers, and also allow for a specific amount of cash withdrawal.

Is bedding available?

Yes, we provide 2 sets of bedding so you can change the sheets whenever you want.

Is Wi-Fi available in my room?

We offer free Wi-Fi in all of our dorms. Internet access via wi-fi is available free of charge in all rooms.
Kindly note that use of any private devices (such as servers, routers) is not permitted, as these will interfere with the rest of the network. Furthermore, our access points must not be removed at any time.

Will my room be cleaned?

Yes,  your room will be cleaned every week (* subject to alteration) as a free service by the cleaning ladies. When you move out completely, the room will be cleaned thoroughly. You will find the cleaning schedule on our service webpage daily updated.

Are there any towels or a hair dryer?

No, please bring these with you.

Are there equipment for ironing, cleaning or other housewares?

No, you only have a basic setup for cleaning (bucket, broom and shovel,  rubbing broom) and a minimal starter set (toilet paper, dishwasher tabs,  kitchen towel, wettex)

I expect a letter/a package.

Who doesn’t love receiving mail from family and friends? We will provide a mailbox in the residence. The first tenant to move in gets the key for the mailbox. Please always state your full address, so the letter can be mailed. If you receive a package which doesn’t fit into your mailbox and you are not at home, you will receive a notification to tell you where and when you can collect the package.

May I bring a pet?

We love pets. Unfortunately out of respect and consideration for other residents concerning allergies, pets are not allowed in any of our residences.

Am I allowed to smoke in my room?

Smoking is prohibited in all residences. Please pay attention to the house rules and residence constitutions.

How can I wash my clothes?

We offer you laundry facilities such as washing machines and dryers in all residences. We charge a small fee for use of the washing machine.
