Finding Student Housing near Houston

When it comes to student housing, Houston has plenty of choice in terms of cost, style and location. Affordable neighborhoods popular with students include Greater Eastwood, East Downtown and Montrose (especially the area around St. Thomas). These areas offer lots of smaller, older apartment complexes, garage apartments, duplexes and small homes with lots of character. More modern apartment complexes are also available, but cost slightly more due to the increase in square footage and number of standard amenities you’ll receive.

Those with a larger budget might also consider Midtown and Upper Kirby, both of which have several establishments that cater towards students. Again, prices within these areas can vary depending on an apartment’s age, style, size and available amenities.

UH is a commuter campus, and is unlike other universities in that it does not really have an established student community living immediately around it. This is partly because the surrounding area lacks amenities and has a poor reputation, while the city’s car culture make other neighborhoods of Houston a much more attractive proposition. Many students in Houston therefore opt to buy or rent a car to make the commute quicker and less hassle.
