It is about time we made one of these. ASD I was a hit, ASD II is coming up. I'll provide helpful links that aren't from the bad place below. Feel free to respond with poll options.

How long of a walk is it from the law school to the Drag?

1L class schedule- can you give me a general idea what hours you can expect to be in class? Like 8:30 - 3:30? 9-5? Depends on your section?

Thanks!
like 15-20 minutes. also, i can think of no reason you'd need to walk to the drag other than chipotle or the coop.

all 1Ls started at 9:10 or later this year. last semester i was done by 2:07 at the latest. this semester i am done by 3:22 at the latest. you will usually get a decently long lunch break as well. I typically get to school at 8 and leave right after my last class is out to go work out. then depending on the week, i may come back to school to continue to work.

p.s. if you are asking about the drag because you are considering living in west campus, i would advise against that.

omg as an Austin native I have to reiterate DO NOT LIVE IN WEST CAMPUS as a professional school student. One, it's far from the law school, and two, you'll hate your life when you're studying or trying to sleep and everything/everybody around you is obnoxious and loud

As a non-native, what would the best place be to live to be near shops/food walkable?

lots of law students live in the north campus/hyde park area. it is close to the drag and some other stuff toward the red river side of campus. also theres an HEB at like 40th and red river.

I know this is a bit old but I had to +1 this. Just spent part of St. Patricks day/night in west campus. So loud even when we were walking around at midnight--didn't quiet down until we left at 2ish and it started raining.

Any recommendations on where to look for family housing? I'm currently pretty committed to Michigan, but suddenly UT got back on my radar...

I don’t know if anyone is interested since we obviously don’t have our sections yet, but the fall 1L schedule has been posted.
https://law.utexas.edu/courses/catalog/ ... year/20189
This may seem gunner-ish (I promise it's just coming from a place of excitement!), but does anyone have any idea about when we'll be assigned to our sections? It would be nice to know for planning my commute. Thanks in advance!

The areas around the school can get pretty pricey, but you may be able to find something small in Hyde Park/North Loop or the Cherrywood/Mueller neighborhoods. A bit farther out are Windsor Park, Crestview, the northBurnet area, and the townhomes in Northwest Hills. The farther you go the more space you can get- but I personally wouldn’t recommend any farther than Milwood/the Domain at the very farthest.
this is accurate. however, i know there are student families that live in some of the apartments around campus, but they are young families.

We're a pretty young family too, just the one kid so far, who will be just a bit over a year when we get there.

Any current students foresee an issue with living in the East Riverside area? I originally wanted to be in Hyde Park, but after visiting this weekend and not finding anything my SO and I liked that was within our budget, we looked a little further out and found a place we love. The only kicker is that it is 15-20 minutes from the school in light traffic (although I don't have to get on 35 thankfully). I am an early riser, and planned on getting to campus by 7ish because I don't want to stay late in to the evening, so barring an emergency I won't be hitting traffic at the worst times.

Alt- Anyone commuted from East Riverside/SoCo? What was your experience? Really praying for an SJG pass.

If it's an apartment complex, check the reviews on it. East Riverside is a very mixed bag.

That said, the commute is just fine. I lived in the area and worked downtown for a week or two and it wasn't bad. Even in rush hour it's not terrible.

That was another concern, but I visited over the weekend and I was very impressed, and all of the online reviews give it high marks for safety and cleanliness. Thanks for alleviating some of my concerns about the commute.

The other good thing is that even if you did take 35 from East Riverside, you'll be getting on when it starts to open up (the worst part is from Slaughter until Cesar Chavez/Holly)
