The university is located in a residential area 10 minutes from downtown by tram. Total enrollment at JKU is about 16,000 students, including about 1,500 international students.
Located on the banks of the Danube, Linz has its origin in a Roman settlement and served as a residence for German emperors during the Middle Ages. The third largest city in Austria, Linz is a flourishing industrial, commercial and cultural center. The main square in the center of the city, laid out as a market place in 1260, is surrounded by a pedestrian zone with a variety of shops and cafés. From Linz, it is an hour drive to the Austrian Lake District with sailing, mountaineering and skiing facilities.
Students on the Linz program will stay at university arranged housing.
