Where to Live
In general, housing in West Campus caters to student life with mostly low-rise apartments, newer high-rise buildings, and a smattering of fraternity and sorority houses. However, you can also find a few detached single-family homes as well as luxurious condos in the northwest and southwest corners of the neighborhood. Expect to pay a high premium in this high-demand area. For a quieter living experience, steer clear of Guadalupe Street, also known as The Drag, where the neighborhood's shops, restaurants, and bars are located.
Where to Eat
No matter what your favorite type of food is, you'll probably find it in West Campus. Like the rest of Austin, there's no shortage of BBQ, Tex-Mex, and traditional Mexican restaurants. There's also plenty of Japanese, Thai, Korean, Indian, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, British, and Continental cuisine. You'll also never go hungry no matter the time of day or night, thanks to neighborhood mainstays Kerbey Lane Cafe and Ken's Donuts that are open 24 hours.
What You'll See
Students, students, and more students. This neighborhood is called "West Campus" for a reason - its population is predominately undergraduate students (most graduate students tend to live farther north). The occasional UT professor or staff member also takes advantage of the couldn't-be-easier commute. Because of this focus on student life, the neighborhood does turn into a bit of a ghost town over winter break and also during summer break.
Friday Night Fun
Because of the campus atmosphere, the nightlife tends to be focused on bars and private parties. For those looking for other forms of entertainment, there are also plenty of small live music venues that mostly host local acts and the occasional touring cult favorite. Of special note is Hole in the Wall, a dive bar and music venue that has been the happy hour destination of choice for faculty and students for over 40 years.
The Perfect Sunday
Although there are plenty of daytime activities in the surrounding area (parks, museums, theaters, libraries, etc.), choices within West Campus itself are relatively limited. If you're going for a Sunday stroll or brunch, you can check out a number of interesting shops and restaurants along Guadalupe Street. History buffs can also enjoy the Neil-Cochran House, a 19th century mansion turned museum.
