With the establishment of the “Social and Economic Sciences” in Linz in 1965, there was also a great demand for student hostels.
At that time there was a great upbringing mood and a lot of idealism in Linz. Thus, efforts were made by all political and ecclesiastical sides on a voluntary basis to create favorable housing opportunities for students.
The founder of our home – Dr. Alfred Jelinek – was then chairman of the “Freiheitliche Akademiker in O.Ö.” and pursued the idea to build this dorm at the best place near college. The “Studentenhilfsverein in Linz” was founded as the home carrier, who had to raise funds for this. This difficult task was ultimately achieved with the support of politics, science and the general savings bank.
