Studentenhaus Oikos

Oikos, the ancient Greece term for “domestic and economic community,” beautifully reflects the living atmosphere of this dormitory located at the southwestern edge of Vauban. The Oikos residence hall opened in the fall of 2008 and is one of the smallest dormitories in Freiburg.

All students are housed in WG-style apartments (flat-sharing communities) in the front part of the building. A suite is comprised of four to five single rooms.

From Oikos, biking to the city center takes between 10-15 minutes (about 7 minutes by tram).
