Housing & Transportation
- People's first stop is oftentimes Craigslist, which is a helpful tool for discovering roommates or decent rental deals. In addition to standard apartment complexes and condos, it's not uncommon for 2 or 3 students to get together to rent a small house or bungalow. There are many options like this available around town. But Craigslist is not a practical option if you're not in Austin to physically look at places.
- You might cross-reference Craiglist with the neighborhood descriptions listed further down the page on www.utstudent.com to get a sense of where to begin. Most students live in these areas because of their proximity to campus and/or transportation options they provide. There is good list of other apartment locators found at the bottom of this page.
- Join the UT Austin Sublet & Roommate Finder on Facebook.
- International Students: consult the Simply International website.
- All students may join the waitlist for a university apartment. It's a long list that will likely take more than a year, but it's worth it in terms of long-term investment, particularly for doctoral students and/or students with spouses/children.
- View this helpful graduate student housing survey recently conducted by the Department of Chemical Engineering, which applies to students in any program.
- You may sign up to receive email notifications on the GCN Housing listserv (GCN = Graduate Coordinator Network).
- New graduate students in C/DMES may communicate with each other through this listserv, which you have all been added to by the Graduate Coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org. You will also be added several other lists used for other purposes.
- Here are some other sources which may be useful: UT Off-Campus Housing and one (of many) apartment locaters.
- UT shuttles are free. Routes can be viewed here though the university's Parking & Transportation page.
- Capitol Metro is the name of Austin's public transportation system. The buses are also free to UT students with the presentation of a valid student ID.
