KEY:
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.

Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? I think that living in an apartment provides the most independence.
Personal comments:
Housing is a little complicated Austin, as you have to decide between the quite expensive aprtments on West Campus (close to the UT campus) and the cheaper ones further away.
