Whether you’re tired of dormitory housing or just looking for a more independent lifestyle, we’re sure to have a studio, one-bedroom, or two-bedroom that is perfect for you. Almost all of our units are less than $925/month that isn’t “per bedroom” that’s for the whole apartment! Bring a roommate if you’d like, but we’re not going to force you to have one! These residential apartment buildings are a quick walk, bike ride, or drive to the campus, which means that if you’re a student of UT Austin and ACC, we can help keep that transport expense low.
West Campus is one of the city’s most popular areas for living, dining, shopping, and everything in between. Not to mention, with the university’s more than 50 Greek organizations and 1,000+ student organizations registered through the university, there is bound to be an organization for you. If you’re an active member of the UT Austin student body, West Campus is worth considering for off-campus apartments. The accessibility makes it one of the sought-after areas for apartments near downtown Austin
West University Apartments
Equally convenient with other nearby areas near downtown, west campus (also known as West University) is the second most bike-friendly area in the city after North Campus. Should you spend more of your time traveling by car? The free parking permit included for every unit in each property certainly helps to alleviate the pain of finding parking. If you prefer to walk from your West Campus apartment, you can expect at most, under 15-minute time to campus. Many choose to walk down Guadalupe Street (aka “The Drag”). This street is a major hub for most buses in the neighborhood.
University life-aside, there’s no shortage of activities to partake in after class. The Montage, West Campus Flats, Rio Grande Square, Diplomat, Barranca, and Envoy are one of the excellent college student apartments in Austin for independent living. These are minutes away from some of the best theaters, comedy clubs, live music, and food trucks the city has to offer. The Spider House doubles as both a cafe for daytime studying, as well as a late-night venue for beers and live music.
On Campus Student Housing
If you are looking for campus accommodation, the university offers on-campus dormitories that they manage. Usually, these are on a first-come basis and may require a long list of qualifications. Our west campus apartments are an alternative to these housing and will put you equally close by and get to class on time. Being so close allows you to walk or bike and forgo the frustration of parking a vehicle near campus. It avoids the possibility of dealing with the financial burden of parking passes and the inevitable parking violations.
