Level of Support: University of Graz, Graz, Austria

On-Site Staff:

The University of Graz has an international office that provides services to international students while abroad. The international office staff will help you make housing arrangements and they will host a "Welcome Week" orientation for all international students at the beginning of the semester. They also coordinate a "buddy program" where Austrian students are matched with international students to help with the adjustment of living in a new country. 

Health & Disability Resources:

The University of Graz requires that year-long exchange students purchase Austrian Student Health Insurance, in addition to their CISI insurance plan. There is no on-campus medical staff but the International Office will provide you with a list of English-speaking doctors during orientation. 

Disability services are offered by the Disability Resource Center. 

More Information:

If you still have questions on level of support, you can contact the Study Abroad Coordinator, Cheryl Lochner-Wright (

After acceptance into the program, you will obtain more information about services at your program location, in your program guide and in orientation materials.
