Given its location next to UT, West University is a hot spot for students looking to live off campus. Though you will find a few single family homes, the majority of housing is a mix of condos, apartments and duplexes. Housing moves fast because of the constant influx of students from semester to semester. Most of the condos were built in the 60’s through the early 80’s, although newer construction is also available. The average one to two bedroom condo is around 800 to 900 square feet, making them ideal for student housing. If you’re looking for a single family home near UT, I wouldn’t rule out West University if you can tolerate the hustle and bustle of campus activities.
