Living with your closest friends can easily be one of the best experiences that you take away from your years at the University of Texas. Whether you’re cooking dinner together in your kitchen or laughing at your favorite TV shows on your couch, the time you share with your roommates is what many people (including myself) love the most about college.
But when it comes to living in West Campus, it can be pretty difficult to find an apartment that can comfortably accommodate a large group of students.

Luckily, Rambler offers an array of spacious floor plans, the largest of which are the six-person penthouses. Because this is such a unique floor plan, Rambler’s leasing team receives many questions about penthouse-style living. To help you get acquainted with Rambler’s penthouse units, we’ve created this guide of some of the most important features that make these floor plans stand out.
8 Things UT Students Should Know About Rambler’s Six-Person Penthouses
1. Bedroom Sizes
One of the best perks of the penthouse units is the massive bedroom size. Plus, with two closets, you’ll have plenty of room to store your entire wardrobe. And with all the extra square footage, you can bring your favorite furniture pieces from home to make the space your own.
2. Queen Beds
In a traditional 6×6 unit, each bedroom comes with a full-sized bed. However, in the penthouse units, each bedroom includes a queen bed. You won’t be able to find this at most new developments in West Campus, since they typically only come with full-sized beds.
3. Double-vanity Bathroom
Every penthouse bedroom also has its own attached bathroom, and every bathroom (with the exception of rooms A and D in The Palm) has two sinks. This way, you have more than enough space to get ready for work, class, or a night out.
4. Two Living Rooms
Each penthouse floor plan features two living rooms (one on each floor). Each floor has its own entrance for added convenience. The heightened ceilings with large windows allows for ample natural light to flood the common areas on both floors. The second level of each apartment even has an additional ledge that overlooks the space below, making it a perfect bonus study spot. Because the thoughtful layout is spread across two floors, you aren’t truly sacrificing any of the space you’d have in a typical shared apartment.
5. Double Appliances
Both floors in every penthouse also have their own washer and dryer units. As for the kitchen, the double appliances (two fridges and two dishwashers) provide ample space for each roommate.
6. Fully-furnished Balcony
Each penthouse features a spacious fully-furnished terrace balcony that can serve as a great location to relax with friends. With the additional square footage, you’ll never run out of spaces to entertain.
7. Best Views
To top off the penthouse lifestyle living, each unit is located on floors seven and eight, the highest in the property. With better views and ample sunshine, you’ll live in one of the best spots in Rambler.
8. Suits Any Lifestyle
One of the best things about the penthouse units is their versatility. Whether you enjoy constant entertainment surrounded by people, or quiet alone time in your bedroom, the penthouses can serve anybody’s needs. The two large living rooms are perfect for hosting a watch party, student org meeting, or a girl’s night. The extra-large bedrooms offer a perfect retreat to relax and create your home-away-from-home feeling.
