Austria’s terrain is highly mountainous due to the presence of the Alps; only 32% of the country is below 500 meters, and its highest point is 3,798 meters. The majority of the population speak local Bavarian dialects of German as their native language, and German in its standard form is the country’s official language. Other local official languages are Hungarian, Burgenland Croatian, and Slovene. The capital and largest city is Vienna. Austria is one of the richest countries in the world, with a nominal per capita GDP of $46,330 (2012 est.). The country has developed a high standard of living and in 2011 was ranked 19th in the world for its Human Development Index.

Most exchange students book a room in a student dorm via the Austrian Exchange Service (OeAD). OeAD arranges rooms in student dorms and students pay their monthly rent accordingly. This is the easiest and most convenient way to find relatively inexpensive housing. MCI cooperates with the student dorm “Internationales Studentenhaus” (ISH). Exchange students can book a room at ISH directly through MCI. Finding private housing in Innsbruck is challenging, especially at the beginning of a new semester. Nevertheless, students who are willing to invest considerable time and effort may be able to find a room in a shared apartment or a studio.
