It's a simple fact that housing dollars go further in Houston than in virtually any other metropolitan area in the United States. Houston is a huge and bustling metropolis with an almost unlimited variety of housing options, from off-campus apartments and houses to campus housing.
Students who will not have their own transportation should consider campus housing or student apartments located next to the campus. Public transportation is limited.
Campus housing, especially newer housing like Calhoun Lofts, fills up very quickly. Students interested in living on campus are encouraged to confirm arrangements as soon as possible.
Most apartment complexes charge a security deposit that may not be refundable if you decided to live elsewhere. Deposits for campus housing are generally refunded if a student decides not to attend the University of Houston.
