Music at the UAS
The choir of St. Pölten UAS continuously expands its musical repertoire covering a great variety of music styles and genres. New voices are always welcome.
Team spirit in sports
When you want some physical exercise to compensate for all the brainwork, you will find what you need at
Campus Sport, the UAS’s sports club. From dance training to team sports, the club offers sports enthusiasts numerous options.
Hip cafés and traditional inns
From international cuisine to local inns and cherished beer and wine culture. At Rathausplatz and Herrenplatz in the city centre, cosy outdoor cafés and restaurants invite you to relax, and wine taverns
are also located within walking distance.
Revellers will also have a good time: In the bars and clubs, you can dance and party into the wee hours. Many cafés offer breakfast for late risers.
Being part of it instead of just taking part
The Frequency music festival taking place in St. Pölten is popular with our students. Some of them also do a great job behind the scenes.
Through the city on two wheels
St. Pölten can be excellently explored by bicycle. You may also rent a scooter against a small fee at the UAS. By summer and winter alike, St. Pölten is the ideal bicycle city.
Pure nature close by
