University Place Apartments

University Place Apartments has traditionally been Baylor students’ absolute first choice favorite for off-campus housing. This is not surprising since it occupies one square city block (ie: 5th – Bagby – 4th – Hopkins) literally right next door to campus. In fact, as Baylor University continues to grow and expand, University Place is increasingly surrounded by Baylor, making it indisputably the most desirable and the most convenient location of any private off-campus housing at Baylor University. U.P. is an absolutely ideal location. It is right across the street from the Hankamer School of Business, and most campus destinations are easily accessible either by a short walk, a fast bike ride or perhaps by a free shuttle ride.

One of my favorite things about this complex is how well they take care of the grounds. There are always beautiful flowers, and they water the lawns enough that it’s always green here even when the rest of Texas grass is dry and dead. It’s also a very well-lit complex, and I always feel safe walking to my door at night.

Great Manager, Great Maintenance, Great neighbors. It’s quiet, older but well kept. I was really, really happy here. You couldn’t ask for a better apt. manager… she really goes out of her way to help!
