West University

Full of Coeds and Thrives on the University's Energy
West University, also known as West Campus, is a 15 minute walk from the heart of the University of Texas. The environment is as upbeat and vibrant as the coeds that frequent these highly populated streets. The diverse architecture includes apartments, bungalows, duplexes, mansion and uniquely designed homes. Here you will find a lot of shopping on The Drag, aka Guadalupe St, and a lot of fraternity and sorority houses sprinkled through out the residential area. Check out Fricano’s Deli or Kerby Lane Cafe for a bite to eat and a good cup of coffee. Stop by Hole in the Wall or Cain and Abel’s any weekend to have a college quality good time.

This is a college neighborhood and renters here are usually students at the University of Texas. They love that this part of the city never sleeps and are happy to be a part of the action.

West University — 8/10 Rating (based on 1 neighborhood reviews)
West Campus is great. It's close to UT and Guadalupe. The parties can be very loud and younger kids can be very annoying on Saturdays. They will keep you up late at night and puke in your building's elevator.
