Think Texas and you might think cactuses, tumbleweed and rodeos, but Austin couldn’t be more different. The freewheeling capital of the state of Texas is an easygoing place, that has a reputation for great music, fun festivals and an open mind. It is one of the great places to go to university in the US, with warm weather (if that’s your thing) and a lively lifestyle. Before you head off for student life it makes sense to get that accommodation sorted early – here is where to find affordable student apartments in Austin.
