The University Apartments, located off campus on Lake Austin Boulevard, are in high demand. The waiting list is long, so be sure to apply early. Shuttle bus service is available from the University Apartments’ three complexes—Brackenridge, Colorado and Gateway—to campus, making the commute easy. Read More
Capital Metro offers bus, shuttle and rail service to the greater Austin metropolitan area. Many students prefer not to bring a car to campus, but instead use Capital Metro or take advantage of the university’s central location by walking or bicycling.
Those who wish to drive to campus must purchase a parking permit.
We’re located in the heart of Austin, so parking is a challenge. Most lots are on the outskirts of campus, but UT Shuttles can get you from them to your campus destination with ease.
Students, faculty and staff with valid UT IDs ride both Capital Metro and UT Shuttles for free.
