HOUSING IN AUSTIN

Austin is a fantastic city with a lot to explore but finding appropriate housing can take some time. Unfortunately, UT Austin does not have housing for visiting scholars but the staff of CES is happy to help you in your search for the perfect home during your stay.

There are some wonderful websites to start with:

Helpful map of Austin by area.

Things to keep in mind:
Sublets, rented rooms, or garage apartments might be preferable since they usually include utilities.
If utilities are not included, there will be additional steps you will need to take to create an account for electricity, cable, internet, and sometimes trash/water.
