3. Independence

Not only can living off-campus at Rambler give you more bang for your buck, but it provides additional independence that you won’t experience at a dormitory.

At Rambler, you will not have a meal plan. This way, you have the flexibility to choose which groceries you need or want, and spend as much or as little as you please.

4. Year-Round Housing

While on-campus housing at UT Austin is leased for 9 months, at Rambler you will sign a 12-month lease. This way, if you’re looking to live in Austin over the summer, you will have a place to stay. However, if you’re looking to visit home, study abroad, or move for an internship during the summer, you can relet your apartment.

5. Proximity to Campus
