The Neighborhood

Riverside, an up-and-coming residential area south of East Austin, boasts some of the cheapest, but furthest, options for student housing.

With the music district of East Austin right in its backyard, Riverside is becoming a hot spot to live for students in Austin. Proximity to Lady Bird Lake and Austin’s biking and running trails make it an obvious score for any student looking for cheaper options away from campus.
