The Standard at Austin is the newest off-campus living experience for students attending the University of Texas at Austin. Situated in the West Campus neighborhood, the luxury community is centrally located less than a mile from campus and is within walking distance to Greek Row and the state Capitol.
The development is nestled along an epicenter of residential and commercial density with an array of dining options, coffee shops, retail, bars and entertainment. This 17-story high-rise comprises 287 units and 989 beds totaling 337,847 square feet, with parking for 490 vehicles at three below-grade levels, up to level four. The lobby, leasing office and 5,400 square feet of retail space are located on the ground floor with residential units on levels three through 17.
Packed with sought-after amenities, the community boasts 33,000 square feet of amenity space in the form of multiple clubhouse lounges — including a rooftop VIP lounge, an outdoor deck with hammocks, bike storage, coffee bar, game room, a pool deck on the seventh floor overlooking the city skyline, a two-story clubhouse, and state-of-the-art fitness/yoga rooms. The Standard offers countless ways to promote both academics and community for a well-rounded and versatile living experience. A plush academic lounge on the second floor offers multipurpose seating and collaboration spaces for groups, while a fully equipped computer lab with Macintosh desktops and private study pods provides individual study time with multiple quiet spaces to hit the books.
For students needing additional private study space, all units are furnished with desks and seating inside each bedroom along with shelf space for study material. All units are fully furnished and range from studios to six-bedroom apartment homes. Units feature open-concept living rooms, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, private bathrooms, spacious closets, and in-unit washers and dryers.
