No single housing solution exists for The University of Texas at Austin’s graduate student population, but these resources may help you find a place to call home—whether you want an apartment close to the university with an easy commute or a house in the suburbs with a yard for the kids.
Should you need help in determining where to live off campus, the Graduate School and the Graduate Coordinator Network did a survey of where students live. The summary offers a brief description of Austin’s various neighborhoods as well as an idea of what's nearby. Additionally, the website https://UTexas.Rent provides various housing listings available to students.
The University Apartments, located off campus on Lake Austin Boulevard, are in high demand. The waiting list is long, so be sure to apply early. Shuttle bus service is available from the University Apartments’ three complexes—Brackenridge, Colorado and Gateway—to campus, making the commute easy.
