Texas Christian University Off Campus Apartments

Ready for an Apartment near TCU?

TCU Waits 4 U!

Don your purple and white caps folks, we're goin' to Texas Christian University, a place where leaders are born. A cowboy hat might come in handy, since TCU is located a mere five miles from Fort Worth, a historical Wild West city. But Texas ain't all about gun-totin' and cow-wranglin'. No sir, here at Texas Christian University they're all about communication and community. Community service and volunteering are big parts of TCU student's lives; you'll find yourself frequenting the Center for Community Involvement & Service-Learning as much as you do the school cafeteria (well, almost). There's also no lack of community on campus, with 40% of the student body involved in Greek life.

Where the Horned Frogs Get Hoppin'

Now that you're a horned frog you'll need a home. Lucky for you there are lots of ponds (a.k.a spiffy apartment complexes) to choose from. Several are within hollerin' distance of TCU, and are likely to include things like internet cafes, gaming rooms, and swimming pools. Although some listings farther off—a short drive away—they often offer extra amenities, or lower rents, to make up for it. For getting to downtown Fort Worth, take the Trinity Railway Express. The T bus can also get you to pretty much anywhere you wanna go. Buses even have handy-dandy racks on the front, so you can take your bike along. Also, when you’re coming back late from a nice on the town, cabs are always available.

Not Too Big, Not Too Small

Fort Worth is like Goldilocks' chair—not too big, nor too small, but juuust right. You avoid the vulgarity of urban living (i.e. homeless men peeing on street corners) as well an the banality of small town living (i.e. bars that close by 10 p.m.). It is also the 5th largest city in Texas and the 17th in the country. Take in some culture at Kimbell Art Museum or Bass Performance Hall. If you're into the city nitty-gritty, plan a trip to nearby Dallas and check out some music at the Galaxy Club. Before that, swing by City Tavern and grab a beer. On Tuesdays, pints are $3!
