  • University Towers is a great place to live! Being a UT Student, it is super convenient being a 8-10 min walk to campus, and next to plenty of business that you may never need to drive. The staff and people are great and will get anything you need help with done in a timely and hard working manner. Would recommend for any student looking for affordable and close student living in West Campus.
  • This has been my second year living at towers and it has been a pretty good experience. The staff here is really friendly and will help you if you have any problems.The rooms are very spacious especially compared to dorms. The complex is in the heart of west campus and is close enough to campus to walk. The cafeteria serves pretty good food most of the time but for those days when the food is not so good, they have a salad bar and a grill that serves burgers and grilled chicken. The only complaint I have is more with the other residents than the complex itself. On the weekends some of the residents trash the halls and the elevators however the maintenance team does a pretty good job cleaning it all up the very next morning. Overall though Towers is a great place to live for your first few years as a student in Austin.
  • I have lived at University Towers for the past 2 years and love it. The apartments are very spacious and have a lot to offer. Each apartment is furnished and has its own balcony. Cable and wifi are also included and I have never had any trouble with either. The rooftop offers a breath taking view of the city of Austin, and you can see for miles. The building is located in the heart of West Campus, making it only 5-10 minute walk to campus. Being located in the city of Austin, there is always something to do and you are never bored.
  • Whether you will appreciate living at University Towers depends upon who you are and what you're looking for in an apartment. If you are going Greek, want to live in the heart of West Campus, don't mind that the floors show evidence of partying (weed, beer), etc.—you'll like Towers. There's a decent gym; it gets the job done. A cafeteria—which serves great food, where you can save a lot of money on coffee, and which has an awesome staff—is downstairs. You can park your car in a safe garage right across the street. The whole staff is awesome (special shoutout to Nancy and Greg), and the maintenance crew is quick and competent. If you want to read about Towers' shortcomings, see the other reviews. It's not as bad as other residents are making it sound, but there's obviously some truth to their complaints. The source of most of these flaws are some goblins who routinely choose to live here, nasty and inconsiderate monkeys who make the apartment's job much more difficult.
  • I love living here! This place is so close to campus and has a gym downstairs I can always go to with everything I need. The meal plan is outstanding and helps me not waste anytime when I need food. The staff is awesome, especially the Student Staff members that are great and understanding since they are students as well. Would highly recommend for any student coming to UT or ACC.
