University of Houston Off Campus Apartments
Ready for an Apartment near UH?
Finding an apartment around the University of Houston offers alot of options. The closer you are to campus, the easier the commute so it pays to start with areas like Montrose/Midtown/Upper Kirby area. You'll find both high rises and smaller complexes in this inner loop area. The bar scene is huge but you'll want to try Little Woodrow's for sitting outside on the patio or The Gingerman for a great beer selection.
Downtown living can offer an attractive alternative and is still close enough that the commute to UH isn't terrible. Lofts and condos are plentiful and pricey, but you would be in the middle of the best area for shopping and nightlife. The area is very vibrant and fun these days. The greatest concentration of apartments is around The Galleria Area. Uptown, as it is locally referred to, has world class shopping and plenty of restaurants and bars. Try one of the Bronx bars for a nice scene.
Houston has an excellent bus system if you prefer mass transit rather than driving, but the city is a car town and is sprawling, so check into parking near or on premises of your Houston apartment. When you become a Houston Cougar, you'll be spending plenty of time on campus but the availability of so many great places near the university will make student life a lot more fun too.

I’m relocating to Houston for work. Can you give me some advice of what neighborhoods to live in?
If you prefer a more urban neighborhood, Downtown is great with its abundance of bars and restaurants. The apartments there can be pricey though. The Woodlands, Sugarland, and Pearland all have a pretty quick commute into the city and are more suburban. If you like being near water, Clear Lake is the neighborhood for you.

Midtown Houston is a mixed-use neighborhood consisting of families and young professionals alike. This close-knit, thriving community boasts an active lifestyle where residents can walk or bike to the nearby shops, restaurants, businesses, and even the local medical center. Situated in the Neartown area of Houston, Montrose is another pedestrian-friendly neighborhood with an assortment of amenities nearby as well as a rich arts and entertainment district.
Is Houston a town where I'll need a car to get around?
Definitely. One of the most car-oriented large cities in America, nearly 90 percent of people drive their car alone to work each day. The Houston landscape, which consists of many highways, wide streets, and parking lots, does not lend itself well to walking as a viable way of navigating the city. In addition, Houston's public transportation consists only of the METRO, which operates bus lines, as well as the new and very popular light rail line called METRORail. METRORail light rail line that runs between downtown, midtown, the museum district, the Medical Center, Reliant Park, and the Fannin South Park and Ride.
