West University TX Homes & Real Estate

West University, or West U, is a neighborhood in Houston, TX, known for its low-profile, and highly affluent living. This city in Houston’s inner loop is just minutes away from important Houston landmarks, such as downtown, the Galleria, and the Texas Medical Center.

West U is near River Oaks, Montrose, Museum District and Memorial Villages plus near upscale shopping in Rice Village. Its north-to-south boundary is Bissonet St. to West Holcombe Blvd. The east-to-west boundary is Kirby Dr. to Community Dr. With stately homes, some dated back to the 1930s, and extreme walkability, West University is often named one of the best places to live in Houston, Texas, and the entire United States!

Things to Love in West University
There is a lot to love about West U, including the following.

• Excellent schools
• Safe neighborhood
• Lots of parks and stately homes
• Ideal for families
• Dependable local services
• Eclectic restaurants and shops

Community Atmosphere
You will love West U if you enjoy the feel of a small town but want to live in a large, urban environment. Residents enjoy easy access to every amenity. However, the city has a close-knit atmosphere not found in other parts of the Houston Metropolitan Area.

West University is located close to Rice University’s campus. There are many interesting shops and dining opportunities. However, this municipality does not have a college campus feel. Instead, this is one of Houston’s most exclusive and family-friendly communities. Even one of the largest little leagues in the country is located in West University.

Activities
West U remains a relatively quiet community. However, even though there are not as many activities as in other Houston neighborhoods, that does not mean there is nothing to do. Residents especially enjoy the following.

• Pocket parks, such as Colonial Park and Friends Park
• Many volunteer opportunities.
• Rice Village, a well-known shopping destination, is located just minutes away.
• Rice running trail
• Buffalo Bayou Park
• Houston Arboretum and Nature Center

Remember, West U is centrally located, so anything you enjoy doing in downtown Houston, you can easily get to from the municipality.

Schools
The schools in West University are some of the highest-ranked in the country. West U families are zoned to the following public schools.

• West University Elementary School
• Pershing Middle School
• Lamar High School

Families in West U can also send their children to Pin Oak Middle School instead of Pershing.

There are also many private schools in the West U area, including the following.

• St. Mark’s Episcopal School (K-8)
• The Rice School (K-8)
• Beehive Coop (Beehive Preschool Center)

West U is located extremely close to multiple higher education institutions, such as Rice University and the University of Houston.

Real Estate
Another great aspect of West University is that its property values remain relatively steady. However, most homes in the city will be quite expensive. The majority are priced at over a million dollars.
