West Campus refers to the area just west of the University of Texas at Austin, extending from Guadalupe (aka “The Drag”) west to Lamar Boulevard. As you may have guessed from its name, the area tends to feature different types ofstudent housing, including a large number offraternity and sorority houses, student-run co-ops and apartment complexes, and caters mainly to the university crowd.
In addition to the vast number of student residences, you’ll also find a number of small single-family homes and duplexes in this area. Many of these bungalows are located on quieter side streets that thwart through-traffic, like the unusually named 22½ Street, creating small oases within the always buzzing neighborhood. With plenty of trees and beautiful (and occasionally beautifully random) architecture, West Campus is a great place to go for a stroll between classes.
If you’re looking for cultural and tourist attractions, the area is jam-packed with things to do and places to go. Naturally, there are plenty of UT highlights, like the Harry Ransom Center, Blanton Museum of Art, LBJ Library, Texas State History Museum (which also houses an IMAX theater), and the historic Cactus Cafe. Off-campus, there’s the Neill-Cochran House Museum, located on San Gabriel Street, and the Capitol is just a hop, skip and a jump away for those interested in Austin’s history and politics.
Another perk of living in West Campus will resonate with die-hard Longhorn fans: it’s easy to walk to all of UT’s home football games, which means you can avoid the hassle of trying to find parking on game day!
Shopping on The Drag includes the University Co-op’s main bookstore (where you can stock up on all things burnt orange), as well as its adjacent art store, and a variety of fast food restaurants, coffee shops and convenience stores. The strip closest to the university always seems to be changing, depending on the fashions of the day, but further north on Guadalupe you’ll also find quirky old-school Austin establishments like Kerbey Lane Cafe, Dirty Martin’s, Conan’s Pizza, Toy Joy, Spider House, and the Wheatsfield Co-op grocery store.
For outdoorsy types, Pease Park borders West Campus’s western edge, boasting plenty of green space, as well as basketball and volleyball courts, BBQ pits, picnic tables and reservable facilities for your outdoor events. The park is also the site of the annual Eeyore’s Birthday Party, a festival that celebrates Austin’s counterculture with live music, food and drink, and plenty of reveling. The park also feeds into the Shoal Creek Greenbelt, miles of trails that provide great hiking and biking opportunities within downtown Austin.
Whether you’re looking for student housing or single-family homes in a great neighborhood with plenty to do, West Campus has a little bit of something for everyone, offering downtown living at affordable prices.
