“I am a UT grad student; where else would I want to live? I like Buffalo Exchange - - and EcoWash - - and more stuff than I can name!”
University of Texas students and lifetime residents of Austin mingle in the parks and eateries of North University. Are you moving to Austin to complete your studies, join the UT Austin faculty or staff, or work downtown? North University may be just the place for you to settle. From 27th street to 38th street and east/west bound by Duval and Guadalupe, this area boasts an eclectic mix of urban and green spaces, cantinas and coffee shops, and of course, local shopping and services. In the midst of a sea of food and entertainment options at the head of “The Drag” (a stretch of Guadalupe that cuts through the University area) don’t miss the bread and pizza crust at Miltos Pizza. Just around the corner is a quirky but quiet coffee shop, Spider House Cafe, equally useful for studying or catching a musical or artist performance.
Walk to campus along the Greenbelt of Adams Hemphill Park and join neighbors for regular maintenance of the greens of this park with “It’s My Park” events. Stop off at latest addition Sparky Park, a unique “pocket park” converted from an old electric sub station. Order a pitcher at Posse East, a classic University bar. Historic homes and cottage bungalows intertwined with multi-tenant properties make North University a unique andconvenient community for students, busy professionals, and central-loving families to come home to.

“Grant (Whittenberger) was always there for us when we needed him. Grant also had our best interest at heart when it came down to contract time on both sides. He coordinated a flawless transition plan (with both realtors) for us, so we did not have to utilize rental housing. Grant was always a step ahead of the gameplan. I truly felt like we were in great hands at closing time; everything was very organized.” - Tina K.
