Lease Virtually with Housing Scout



It’s a big step to move from home to your university. It’s an even bigger step to move from the dorms, into an actual apartment! Luckily, you don’t have to do it alone.


Housing Scout is a service that helps people locate, tour, and fill out the necessary paperwork to live in their dream home! What is unique about the Housing Scout experience is that our agents have access to 100’s of living situations, without any bias – so you will see truly everything that is available to you.


All you have to do is reach out to us, and one of our agents will give you a tailored experience so that you can find your perfect apartment match!


As you know, life as we know it has been shifted for an indefinite period of time.


The modification to UT classes and the “shelter in place” ordinance alters how we ordinarily conduct business but we have come up with a solution to continue helping clients. We have been able to move our platform completely online so that you can still get help finding your housing for the next school year, at no cost to you. Here is how:



Step 1: Visit our website at housingscout.com to explore different neighborhoods and property types within your budget.

***Our website showcases properties all over Austin, with a focus near UT in the West and North Campus neighborhoods.

Step 2: Get in touch by clicking “Apply Now” or “Schedule a Tour” under the property of your choice and fill out the information questionnaire.

***Then you will be immediately connected with an agent! They will reach out to you via email or phone.

Step 3: Your agent can help you with a virtual tour of the properties you’re interested in. Many properties have been able to film short videos of their properties or take pictures for clients to review. Your agent will also see if the leasing office is offering any application specials at the moment.

Step 4: Once you have taken your virtual tours and have made your decision, your agent will walk you through the leasing paperwork and monies due to secure your apartment.

***Monies may include application fees, security deposit and 1st month’s rent for condos and houses.

Step 5: After your application is approved, you will digitally sign your lease with the management company!

There are hundreds of available apartments around UT campus – but we can help you navigate this important decision.
