A Community Built For Longhorns

Social and academic amenities to support students.

Starting university is an exciting time in a student’s life. Adjusting to an increased workload and new environment can be stressful though, especially if you don’t have opportunities to balance your responsibilities with some fun and relaxation. At Legacy on Rio, our goal is to provide freshmen with a living experience leagues above dorm living without sacrificing the perks of on campus living. Our amenities make it easy to study, socialize, and get some fun in. With private study rooms, students can easily find a quiet spot to study for exams and complete assignments. Stay in shape and work up a sweat any time of day in our 24/7 state-of-the-art fitness center. Spend your free time in our community clubhouse or in our outdoor courtyard, grilling up some grub while playing lawn games! With so much available, you’ll love living at our UT Austin off campus housing community!
