University of Texas at El Paso Off Campus Apartments
Ready for an Apartment near UTEP?
School pride is everywhere at University of Texas at El Paso. The students even have their own hand sign: the “pickaxe” hand symbol in the shape of a fist with the pinky and thumb out. UTEP students have a reason for pride; they attend a school that mixes classic Texas charm with unique international elements. For starters, its buildings are strongly influenced by the Bhutanese dzong style, which adds a touch of Eastern flair to the campus. UTEP is also crucially located right on the US-Mexican border, so Miners are closely involved in the issues surrounding immigration policy.
Housing Situation at UTEP
Dorm life is unique and every college student should maybe try it once (if you can afford it), but let’s be real; dorms are completely overrated. They are expensive, they are small, and you may or may not end up with roommates you could tolerate for the entire contract of your stay. UTEP doesn’t offer that many options for on campus housing either so finding your own apartment in El Paso is a great opportunity, in the words of Social D, to finally take away that ball and chain. There are numerous rental options near the UTEP campus depending on what sort of situation you are looking for. Our listing for El Paso has a range of single-family homes up for rent as well as units in relatively new apartment communities. Many of the rentals are within at least a bikable distance from campus. There’s also public transportation if you do not own a bike. If you’re looking for a nice quiet neighborhood, be prepared to commute. The UTEP campus is centrally located in downtown El Paso so the quieter homes will be farther away. Don’t freak about the search process however. College is a time to try new things and we have guides to help you along the process.
The Sun City
Being a student in downtown El Paso is a great way to immerse yourself in the resources of a big city, while learning about the unique character of the Southwest. El Paso straddles the Texas border with Mexico and with New Mexico, so you’ll be right at the epicenter of Tex-Mex cuisine and culture. Right on campus, The Centennial Museum and Chihuahuan Desert Gardens is a natural and cultural history museum with a focus on ancient pottery and native plant species. The El Paso Museum of Archeology also presents a view of the past, with unique geological information and extensive information on native peoples and their lifestyles. If you’d rather explore life in the here and now, El Paso has you covered there, too. With an average of 300 sunny days a year, there’s no better place to head outdoors and adventure. El Paso has mountains, desert, mesas, and a river. No other school in the country gives you that kind of incentive to lace up your hiking boots and explore!
