Apartment Finders Service is Austin’s most experienced apartment locating service in the University of Texas area. We know the area better than a sixth-year senior! We compile listings from all leasing and management companies in popular student areas like West Campus, North Campus, Hyde Park, Red River, Far West, Enfield, Tarrytown, Riverside and more.
We know the bus routes, bike routes, walking trails and some secrets to help you find the apartment or house that fits your personality, needs, and budget. Start looking early, and we can find you (and your roommates) a pad close to class, close to the fraternity or sorority house, close (or far) from that special someone, or close to that “coffeehouse” where you do most of your “studying”.
