Finding affordable Austin off campus housing that is just a short walk or bike ride to school is a dream for many college students. A high-rise building with luxurious features is especially appealing. Men and women appreciate being able to swim in the apartment pool and work out in the fitness center. They like being able to come home for lunch between classes.

Married Students

This type of Austin off campus housing may be attractive to married couples who are full-time or part-time students. They might find a studio or one-bedroom floor plan that works well for them. Only about 7 percent of university attendees nationwide are married, but the percentage is significantly higher for nontraditional students age 26 and older. Not having to commute separately to campus because of conflicting schedules allows them to spend more time together.

Going Home for Lunch

Just going home for lunch can be one of the favorite aspects of having housing close to campus. The students save money when they eat at home. They have broader choices if they want meals with certain specific features. That might include vegetarian or vegan meals, or gluten-free options. These possibilities tend to be more limited in campus dining areas.

That break from campus also can help a person take 15 minutes at home for stress-busting activity. Meditation, listening to favorite music or having an in-person conversation with one’s spouse provides a beneficial mental reset for the afternoon.
