Student co-living at Winderhof

Do you want to live alone but still be among others? Then ERNAS HAUS in Dorn­birn is just what you’re look­ing for. The 18 studio apart­ments in our nice and cosy student resi­dence are one of the true high­lights on our farm. Winder­hof is located in Vorarlberg’s Alpine Rhine Valley in the far west of Austria and goes back for three gener­a­tions. We offer a unique living expe­ri­ence for anyone who appre­ci­ates comfort in a cosy space – and at a reason­able price. ERNAS HAUS is in imme­di­ate prox­im­ity to the Univer­sity of Applied Sciences FH Vorarl­berg and just a stone’s throw from our farm shop. A friendly rela­tion­ship with the Winder Family is included in the price. We prior­i­tize students, but if we have any studios avail­able, we’re happy to offer them to other single tenants.


Our studios

Our 18 studio apart­ments are 16 m² on aver­age and include every­thing you need to live and work comfort­ably. Ten of our studios have a balcony. ERNAS HAUS is part of the Winder­hof complex in Ober­dorf, Dornbirn.

Live alone together

Living at ERNAS HAUS, you become part of the community at the Winderhof, yet you can always find time and space for yourself in your cosy studio apartment. A cellar compartment and space for your bike in our underground garage is included with every apartment. There’s also a shared patio with a barbecue area and a laundry room that are used by all tenants. 

Our farm shop

Taste all the regional delicacies that are produced from Winderhof fields at a mere 10 km radius. Our farm shop is right at your doorstep and we offer our tenants 1 euro off all our fresh products. In spring and autumn, you’re welcome to come on a trip to see our fields and taste the range of products in our barn. 

Ecological footprint

By living in this CO2-neutral house, you contribute to positive change through personal ecological balance. The house has been completely renovated and expanded into a new building. The wood used during the construction will easily grow back in the small forest right on our doorstep within 10 years. We heat the house with wood via district heating. Electricity and warm water are produced via our photovoltaic system. 

The perfect location

You’ll be living in Oberdorf, one of the most beautiful districts of Dornbirn, just a 5‑minute walk from FH Vorarlberg. And whether you want to go to the mountains or to a lake, you can quickly reach your destination by taking a local bus or cycling. 

Architecture made in Vorarlberg

Our region is known for its contemporary architecture and our barn has already won a builder‘s award. At ERNAS HAUS, we continue to develop the design language of the existing buildings.
