About University of Texas
Boundaries: IH-35 to Guadalupe St. and Dean Keeton St. to Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
The University of Texas encompasses forty acres just north of Downtown Austin. UT Austin is in an enviable location close to shops, restaurants and green space. There are a great number of living accommodations in the area bordering the campus.
The north end of campus is home to most of the math, engineering and science buildings, as well as the law school. The adjacent area is a leafy neighborhood featuring older homes and a large park. There are a number of apartments on the outskirts. Few shops and eateries can be found here, as it mostly residential.
The western boundary of campus is Guadalupe Street, known as "The Drag". It is filled with clothing boutiques, casual restaurants, video stores and all of the usual shops aimed at a young clientele. There are several large private dormitories and greek houses in this area.
The southern end of the campus abuts the office complexes and museums of the state of Texas. There are very few residential options in this area and eateries are limited to chain restaurants.
The eastern side of campus is bordered by the very busy interstate highway. On the other side of the highway is an area filled with working class homes that are being rapidly gentrified. Popular restaurants and clubs have opened here as of late, and it continues to be a work in progress.
