North Campus Apartments
A Step Up from Dorm Life: North Campus Apartments
Whether you’re looking to make a move from dorm life or want to relocate to a quieter side of UT Austin, North Campus offers plenty in terms of both space, convenience, and possible activities. It’s often referred to as the North University area, adjoining the Hyde Park neighborhood on the north. North Campus is home to many Austin professionals, local artists, and graduate students. The community, in comparison to its ever-bustling counterpart, West Campus, is much calmer and relaxed.
Should you need to commute between campus, the nearby streets are friendly to both walkers and bikers alike. The University of Texas at Austin also has one of the largest university shuttle systems in the United States. It picks up and drops off at various locations around campus and the surrounding area. A bus into downtown is just a quick 2-mile ride away.
The Apartments and North University Area
If you’re looking to live alone, one-bedroom floor plans are available at the North Campus apartments of Hyde Park Court and Melroy. You can also explore studio offerings found at the Monticello Apartments. For those looking for more room to entertain guests or accommodate a roommate, spacious two-bedroom units are also available at the Hyde Park Court.
Once you’ve settled into the apartment of your choosing, familiarize yourself with the diverse selection of restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries, and other shops nearby. For spiced-to order Thai, check out Phad Thai. You can then cool off with the all-natural popsicles at Steel City Pops. Vegan and vegetarian-friendly locales like Mother’s Cafe are also local favorites for brunch.
These North Campus apartments are also conveniently located near interesting record stores, vintage boutiques, and entertainment. Over 100 pieces of sculpture and art can also be found lining nearby Hyde Park’s walkways, complementing its tree-lined streets and historical architecture.
