What Former Residents Have to Say

Here are some opinions of our former residents at the Kolping House.

“For me the Kolping House StudentHOME was a new HOME where I literally felt at home from the beginning. The combination of best infrastructure, individual care and personal development – that's what makes the Kolping House unique. I was able to make interesting experiences and learned a lot during my time here, I also met friends for life!”

Michael Grabner-Sittenthaler, MA, Marketing Kaindl Floor House

“When you leave your home at the age of 15 and change the centre of your life in order to pursue your apprenticeship, then the start, especially, can be tough. Coping with the whole situation was quite a challenge, especially at the beginning. The Kolping House helped me settle with various community activities. I made great friends here, some of which I'm still in touch with now.”

Walter Sagmeister, account manager at Kapsch BusinessCom

“I have very fond memories of my time at the Kolping House and do not want to miss them. During my education at the polytechnic the Kolping House, and especially the team at the Kolping House, were crucial for me. The Kolping House offered great, individual care, from sports activities to group hikes. I loved staying at the Kolping House because it created a much needed balance to the stressful school days; spending time with other teenagers was always a great way to relax.”

Wolfgang Lackner, master builder

"Kolping House, not only a place to live together – rather a community where friendships for life are formed."
