Housing

Here is a useful web site to help you find housing in Austin:

Please note that the University has a system of shuttle buses which run both on and off campus. They even travel to neighborhoods far from campus if a large number of students live there. They are free for students, so when you look for a place to live, be sure to ask if the place is on a shuttle route. Students may also ride the Austin city buses (Capitol Metro) for free.
