Austin’s housing market is difficult - even more so for short-term one-semester stays. Students may choose to live in a private residence hall, a co-op, or apartment. Students may also sublease from a UT student going abroad that semester. More housing is available for spring than fall, as there is less competition for space. Realistically, students should expect to pay rents of at least $700 per month. Suitable lodging close to campus is often more expensive. Residence hall prices range from $700-$2,000 per month with varying degrees of service.
Cost of Living

Restrictions and considerations
College of Business and Economics students only. When selecting courses, BBA students and BBA exchange students MAY NOT enroll in graduate-level courses. The MBA program is completely separate from the BBA program administratively, and course enrolment policies reflect this separation. You can tell if a class is graduate level if the last two digits of the course number are 80 through 99 (please see the Course Information page).
