They have already lived on or off-campus for a year.

Rio Grande Square is a locally managed, 17-unit student housing center in Austin. An apartment complex located at the corner of Rio Grande and 28th street.

Off-Campus Student Housing Neighborhood

West Campus is a walkable student housing neighborhood and is known for students living off-campus. On Guadalupe is where you’ll find a variety of restaurants, coffee shops, bookstores, and boutiques. From pancakes to queso, late-night plates from the nearby Kerby Lane Cafe have been an Austin favorite since the early 1980s. Improve your morning commute to class with an old-school donut from Ken’s Donuts. Or opt for the Texas classics of Whataburger and Torchy’s Tacos after class — all easily accessible when you live in Rio Grande Square.

When it’s time to work off those taco calories, head down to Shoal Creek Greenbelt Park on the west campus, for both hikers and runners, these shady trails are perfect for distance and taking in marquee views of the city. Eastwoods Neighborhood Park is also easily accessible—a 15-minute walk — and full of tennis courts, picnic tables, and plenty of open wooded areas for playing frisbee.
