The student residence is conveniently located close to a subway station that connects with the AIB in 5 minutes. The apartments in the student residence are doubles. Every apartment has its own bathroom and a kichtenette area as well as a balcony. Laundry facilities are also available, as well as a common large kitchen shared by all apartments and a lounge area. Students in the students residence get a meal allowance to subsidize breakfast and one other meal per day.

AIB provides students with a local public transportation pass for the duration of the program. This pass can be used on all local subways and busses and ensures free transportation between the host family and the AIB.
