2400 Nueces Student Housing Amenities

Austin, TX

Project Description

The University of Texas has taken a giant step toward integrating student life with surrounding Austin neighborhoods through its new high-rise apartment in its West Campus. The residential project is designed to appeal to upperclassmen, graduates, faculty, staff and young professionals. Blurring the boundaries between “town” and “gown” is an important new trend in university living environments and 2400 Nueces is the most recent example. However, the design remains sensitive to the students' ultimate objective of focusing on their education by providing community amenities within the highrise.

2400 Nueces includes 304 units with 622 rooms, almost 10,000 square feet of academic space on the ground level, including office space for UT’s Student Offices, and 532 structured parking spaces. Units include a wide range of living configurations including studios, one/two/three/four bedrooms and townhomes in an effort to encourage a diverse population. An outdoor swimming pool with an adjoining spa pool atop the parking garage are set within an extensive deck that can easily double as a work-study location in nice weather. A fully equipped workout facility is located on a common space floor within the building.
