University of Texas Off Campus Apartments
Ready for an Apartment near UTS?
What is better than Disneyland? Absolutely nothing, but one city comes kind of (KIND OF) close. That city is Austin, and the University of Texas in Austin is a gem in a gem. That is what makes getting an off-campus apartment while attending UTA the greatest idea you have ever had.
Show me Your Academic Guns
Alright partner, put your real guns away, stop flexing your muscles, and take out a pen and paper and get ready to study hard. UTA is one of the top ranked public universities and is known for its research, programs like accounting and engineering, top rated professors, and of course the football team. The large size of UTA means that everyone has the opportunity to create his or her own experience and find a niche. Even better than campus: the city of Austin! This is why most students cannot resist the opportunity to live off campus at some point in their college career.
Off The Wall Off-Campus Livin'
I don’t know if you’ve heard, but Austin is the new Portland and Portland is the new LA and LA is the new New York. I might have made up that reasoning, but Austin really is the hippest city in Texas. It has become a mecca for young people who flock to all its cool bars, restaurants, venues, museums and parks. The city definitely caters to the funky urban hip kid who wants to have a good time and meet lots of people; students often choose to live off campus to see what all the hype is about. If proximity is your priority, try West or North Campus areas, where apartments are available and within walking distance from school. These apartments may be convenient, but pricey. Try Riverside for cheaper options and great apartments. Visit our apartment guide to help you make the right choice! If you are lazy like me, then you will be glad to know that public transportation in Austin is the bee’s knees, so you don’t have to walk much if you don’t want. From West and North Campus the shuttle buses will take you right to school. With your ID you can hop on any Capital Metro bus and be whisked away to your desired destination. If you don’t feel like waiting around, there are always a ton of cabs just begging to be hailed.
Austin is Awesome is Ausome is Aus(tin)ome. That is because there is a ton of bars to hop, a ton of live music to see, a ton of young people to meet, and a ton of late night food to eat. Start off at Baby A’s for margaritas and authentic Acapulco dishes. Later, you can check out Cain and Abel’s Bar and Grill. In case you haven’t spent enough time in the library, go to The Library Bar for drinks, not books. Everyone knows that UTA is da bomb, and now you know that Austin is even bombier, so why would you not want to take advantage of the bombiest apartments in the states? Seriously.
