West Campus Real EstateThe West Campus area is located, appropriately, just west of the University of Texas at Austin (UT) campus. Although traditionally considered a community for students - and a rather rowdy one at that - today West Campus is home to students, professors, white-collar professionals, and families, though the neighborhood has lost none of its energy. This densely populated area is perfect for those seeking a diverse, lively segment of Austin's culture.
As Austin has evolved, so has West Campus. The growth of Austin's urban center has, in turn, sparked renewed interest in West Campus real estate. Even today, new construction projects are underway in the area, building everything from new condominiums, to homes and bungalows. As a result, West Campus is a unique mix of old and new properties; a four-decade-old apartment complex may stand between two other built only a few years ago. This diversity of real estate is perfect for the diversity of West Campus residents; there is, quite literally, something for everyone in West Campus.
Residents in West Campus have, of course, very easy access - usually within walking distance - to any number of museums, archives, libraries, and other resources provided by UT. Whether you are a student or a working professional, the wide-ranging collections maintained by UT are constantly changing and expanding to offer you something new.
Along the edge of West Campus runs Guadalupe Street, known among the locals as "The Drag." The Drag is home to restaurants serving everything from Asian to Tex-Mex, stores selling books, clothes, and groceries, as well as banks, bars, and other entertainment venues - in short, a veritable treasure trove of attractions which is readily available to any West Campus resident.
