The Westside Group, based in Austin, Texas, is currently accepting pre-leasing applications for the Fall 2020 term for their Rio Grande Square student housing apartments at their West Campus Austin location. Their apartments are popular with students and others who enjoy the campus vibe and want their own independent living space rather than cramped dormitories and other types of student accommodation. With limited on-campus housing available, anyone looking for student accommodation is advised to ensure that they get a pre-lease in early due to the high demand for West Campus and North University/Campus locations.
A spokesperson at The Westside Group, says, “Our pre-leasing is open to students and non-students alike. It helps solve the problem of the high demand, low accommodation supply issue we have in Austin. As a result, we have had requests nine months and more in advance of term dates so that students and professionals get their ideal place to live. Our advice is to sign up for a pre-lease now rather than wait until the last minute. It’s something you can take care of even during the lockdown.”
The Rio Grande Square Apartments are an independently-operated, off-campus student housing center that is not related to the University of Texas at Austin. The Westside Group has received many inquiries from students and families who want to be near the campus but do not wish to be on campus. One option many are taking up to develop both life skills and to protect their health is to get their own accommodation nearby this has exacerbated the low supply problem for those who will require accommodation this fall. Many students who opt for the Rio Grande Square Student Housing not only have their own place to study; they are also within a short walking distance of the campus, which saves money that would otherwise be spent on commuting.
The Rio Grande Square Student Housing are one-bedroom apartments located off-campus, within walking distance. For those concerned about study interruptions or the spread of COVID-19, they represent a safe place to self-isolate for any reason. They are also a great way to avoid the much-complained issue of roommate problems. With safe social distancing at the top of the list for smart students, these affordable student housing apartments are sure to make the shortlist for those who want their own place to be near the campus.
Supported by online feedback from residents in a 5-Star Google review, Lorena Rodriguez says, “I think the complex is perfect for students or young professionals getting their start. Very charming one-bedrooms, small but with everything you need. I’d highly recommend their management team! In three years, I filed multiple maintenance requests, and they have been extremely prompt about replacing/repairing appliances. The location is great for any University of Texas student (walking distance) or someone who works in the central/downtown area.”
Another review from Isabel Noland backs this up. Her 5-Star review says, “I lived here for a year and had a great experience! The Westside Group is, so far, the most helpful and proactive property management company I've worked with while living in Austin. Any questions or concerns I had were addressed in a very timely manner, and the staff at the office and the maintenance crew were all delightful. As for the unit, it was small but very nice inside; perfect for someone living alone or even a couple if they don't need much space. The fact that it's within walking distance of campus and some restaurants is always a plus. I would recommend this place to others in a heartbeat!”
The Westside Group management responds, “We are grateful to all those who have taken the time to leave their own honest review for Rio Grande Square property for their student housing needs. We strive to provide prompt service should anything go awry. With student housing in shared dormitories and larger private apartments putting health at risk, we can understand why so many people are opting for our one-bedroom apartments. Whether you are a student or working in downtown Austin, we believe we have some of the best and affordable accommodations in the area.”
Those who would like to make inquiries to pre-lease an apartment at the Austin location are advised to reserve early to avoid missing a unit to choose from as units get leased right away. Questions/inquiries may be directed to Chris Murphy of The Westside Group.
