At some point in the distant past, many Austin College students lived in boarding houses on Grand Avenue. New campus housing opened on Grand Avenue this fall, but the 24 new cottages have few, if any, similarities to the residences of the past.
The Village on Grand provides neighborhood-style housing on Grand Avenue for seniors and some juniors. The Village includes 24 cottages—some single, some duplex, and three triplex “mansions,”—each housing four individuals. Each cottage is fully furnished and includes a full-size kitchen, washer and dryer, four bedrooms with full-size beds, four bathrooms, and a living area. Each unit has front and rear covered porches and spacious backyards with reserved parking for each resident.
Near Apple Stadium, the new Flats at Brockett Court provides 26 suite-style residences for juniors, extending living options beyond the traditional residence halls and Johnson ’Roo Suites. Each includes four bedrooms, two bathrooms, full kitchen, washer and dryer, and a living area. All are fully furnished. A community room offers a social space for residents.
