Hancock

Highly Desirable
North of the University of Texas and close to downtown is surprisingly quaint and quiet Hancock, a neighborhood highly desired by professionals, families, university students and faculty. Many homes adorning the neighborhood were built in the early 1900s, and are charming modestly-sized bungalows. There are also apartment complexes and larger homes. Hancock’s suburban lifestyle and convenient location to many Austin attractions makes it a perfect place to live for residents.

Hancock has plenty of restaurants, shopping, and places to socialize with friends. In the heart of the neighborhood is Hancock Golf Course and Recreation Center, a great place to enjoy the outdoors and warm sunny days. Restaurants and cafes in town include the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Pei Wei, Taco Joint, and Cherrywood Coffeehouse. There are also two convenient grocery stores for residents - H-E-B and Fiesta Market. Hancock is perfect for you if you are looking for a neighborly experience while still being close enough to city life.

Hancock — 8.7/10 Rating (based on 39 neighborhood reviews)
It's a pretty nice walkable area. The roads are busy and the interstate is loud. There are also a decent number of homeless people and bikes get stolen frequently. That said, it's nice to have the golf course nearby as well as cafes, grocery stores and convenience stores.

The people that live in the neighborhood are fine. Generally keep to themselves. It is near a bus stop and hospital so there are often homeless people walking around, but they seldom attempt to interact. I have had several packages go missing.

The Hancock neighborhood is very nice with very nice people. So many law students live in Uptown and Sabina, it's nice to have a close group of people from the school.

Hancock is such a cute, friendly neighborhood. Most of the occupants are young families and students. The housing is pretty mixed, from extremely nice to a little more run-down. I have never had an issue with safety in the neighborhood. The Metro 7 line runs right through Hancock and Hyde Park, making public transit an easy option for getting to school. There is also an HEB grocery store, a running trail/public golf course, and a shopping center right in the neighborhood.

This area is relatively quiet, which I love. There isn't really any nightlife nearby (walking distance), but it is easy to get to Rainey or 6th Street as well as many other areas since the building is centrally located. I love the nearby dog park and the ability to walk to and from class at the law school.

There are about 3 restaurants within walking distance, one of which is only open through lunch. There aren't any bars in the area either. The bus does stop right in front of the property, but that's about the only perk other than being a half mile walk from my classes.

Very easy to get to campus - long as you are physically able, it is not worth getting a parking pass or driving to campus. It feels safe to walk around during the day-light hours. Grocery store is accessible and it's a heavily residential area.

The location is fine, about a 12 minute walk to the law school. Close to 35, so you get your share of drifters/vagrants, which leads to a high number of break-ins in the garage.
