Welcome to the city of pumpkin seed oil and sophisticated design
Though Graz just keeps getting hipper, it’s still a very down-to-earth place.
Grab a bike and explore the city. Relax watching the squirrels in the Stadtpark or come home at night and dance on the patio. Everything can be, nothing must: that’s what we’re all about at MILESTONE.
The all-inclusive rental fee includes full furnishings, operating costs, Wi-Fi and TV, an in-house exercise room, and all MILESTONE services.
OUR APARTMENTS MEASURE ABOUT 20M² INCLUDING BATHROOM AND LUXURY KITCHENETTE. WE OFFER YOU PLEASANT, COMFORTABLE SPACES TO MEET NEW PEOPLE AND A SAFE PLACE TO COME HOME TO – WHENEVER YOU WANT.
Make yourself at home. MILESTONE is lots more than just student housing, and we’ve thought of everything: our apartments are bright, friendly, and fully furnished, so all you need to add is your personal touch – plants, posters, whatever!
WITH A VIEW
The large window affords you a pleasing view of the goings-on outside from the security of your room.
Frozen pizza or a five-course meal when your date comes over? With your apartment’s private kitchenette – complete with microwave, refrigerator and glass ceramic cooktop – it’s yours to decide.
Your spacious designer bathroom has a generously dimensioned shower, a large mirror, and a toilet. It may be student housing, but these things are all yours!
To do good work, you need a good workspace – and it goes without saying that your apartment comes equipped with a desk. There’s also a comfortable chair plus lots of natural light, so you’ll be good to go from the get-go.
Milestone residents are ideally networked with high-speed Wi-Fi and unlimited downloads. Skype with your family abroad, download academic materials, or just surf the web.
BED AND STORAGE
We know you’ve got more enjoyable and important things to do than tidying up your room. That’s why we’ve had storage compartments built into our beds – big enough for suitcases, bags, extra pillows, etc.
SECURITY is a top priority everywhere at MILESTONE. But in the end, nothing beats having your own personal safe for worry-free storage of your valuables.

MILESTONE can see it all – and so can you! Our terrace is a great place to relax and recover from hectic student life. Clear your head and enjoy the fresh air.
Go that extra mile to look your best! Our dorm’s own exercise room is the ideal place to blow off steam and stay fit – for yourself, and maybe for someone else, too!
You like to study in good company? No problem – just book one of our Learning Lounges and compare notes with others. And in our specially equipped music room with piano and DJ equipment, you can give your creativity free rein.
Connect the monotonous with the pleasant: at our laundry lounge, there’s no need to just watch your clothing swirl. Order coffee and socialise with your friends!
Hardly any other student dorm can give you this: a calm garden with shady tress and a grilling area for your enjoyment. Study or just chill out – it’s your choice.
Get the information you don’t know. We’ll provide you with every possible support so that you can concentrate on your studies.
Our large lobby is the main hub for the MILESTONE community – this is where it’s at. Here, you can meet other students or friends, relax, read a book from the library, or just hang out and connect.
PARTY ROOM WITH DOLBY SURROUND
The traditional dorm party is a thing of the past, and “work hard, play hard” is our motto: those who study hard should be able to party hard, too, and passed exams deserve to be celebrated. Our party room is exclusively for MILESTONE residents, but you’re of course more than welcome to invite your friends.
IT’S ALL ABOUT LOCATION. WE’LL KEEP THIS SHORT, HERE – JUST LIKE YOUR TRIPS WILL BE. EVEN WHEN THINGS MOVE SLOW, IT’S STILL ONLY A 15-MINUTE RIDE TO ALL THE UNIVERSITIES AND COLLEGES – AND JUST 6 MINUTES TO THE VOLKSGARTEN. PLACES TO RELAX OR DO SPORTS ARE ALL NEARBY, AND THE TRAIN STATION IS AN EASY WALK.
What’s nearby? The new MILESTONE is in the Graz district of Lend. As we’ve said, the universities and colleges are all not far away. You don’t need to stress out in the mornings: doing nothing but learning won’t make you happy. Europaplatz - the beating heart of Graz - is 4 minutes away. This is where local and distance transport will bring you to the big wide world. You’ll find buses and trams to take you through Graz. There’s a shopping mall for you and your cash, and you can up your chances of survival with the pharmacies, supermarkets and drugstores!
Otherwise, we’d just say you should go out and discover the city without a map, get lost and discover new tracks. One thing you shouldn’t miss, though, is a walk on the Schlossberg, just to enjoy the view. A tip from us: take a few cold drinks and some food. Graz is big in some ways, but little in others. It has an unbelievably contemporary feel, and open-minded people!
Graz – the city of cool.
