The Trinity Plegde
We pride ourselves on being constantly available to residents and their parents. To that end, we have developed an online communications portal that allows students, parents, and our team members to communicate easily and effectively. We provide unique usernames and passwords that will allow you to submit work orders, pay your rent online, and email our community team directly with any questions or concerns you may have.
We strive to meet all types of student housing needs by offering various accommodation types with flexible payment options – allowing students to focus on their studies, not money. Our various housing options and programs help ease the burden of college living near UT.
We want to make every transition into our community as smooth as possible! That’s why we’ve developed a custom-matched roommate program to help students meet new people and surround themselves with like-minded individuals. Every student will be asked to fill out a detailed profile questionnaire that includes pertinent information such as hobbies, interests, living habits, and study habits. The program then provides roommate options based on information provided so that residents have the ability to connect via social media before move in. We want to ensure each resident is matched with fellow students who complement their ideal living experience. The friends you make at Dobie are friends for a lifetime.
Our Resident Assistant Program provides mentors that have been thoroughly trained on how to handle and recognize crisis situations and assist with roommate mediation. The program also helps students develop essential skills needed for their future academic and professional pursuits. Any student interested in becoming a resident assistant can visit their community office and complete an application. Resident assistants are eligible for great benefits like free parking, free meals, and free rent! Our roommate mediation services and personal development programs will foster your student's growth and success at school and at home.
Our student apartments are environmentally-conscious to minimize our eco-footprint in Austin. We are committed to sustainability. Our informative “Living Green” blog provides useful information on energy efficient products and conservation efforts. Students can continue to learn while we pursue our mission of utilizing resources that help preserve our environment.
We empower our residents with knowledge and opportunities to step up as conscientious neighbors and citizens. Our “Stepping Up” blog provides guidance on a wide variety of topics that help residents become active members of the campus and city community. We believe that empowered, community-active students enjoy a richer college experience.
Frequently asked questions
I am new to off-campus housing. Can you tell me a little about it?
The full college experience is available just steps away from the University of Texas at Dobie Twenty21. The iconic Dobie has undergone a multimillion dollar renovation but we are still committed to offering the most value for our students by meeting various housing needs with flexible leasing options and a wide array of amenities. All studios and suites are available to lease privately or you can utilize our free roommate matching services and lease for less. Your individual liability lease will include a meal plan as well as access to all of our community areas such as our 24-hour fitness facility and our technology center that features iMacs, PCs and free printing. We have a newly renovated rec room, outdoor theater, relaxing pool and hot tub, friendly on-site team, monthly resident events, weekly housekeeping, gourmet cafeteria, and so much more!
How far is the property from campus?
Dobie is steps from the UT campus and across the street from the six-pack, on the corner of Guadalupe and 21st street.
Do you have to be a UT student?
No! In fact, with its convenient location to downtown and I-35, Dobie is the ideal location for anyone! We have residents that attend Austin Community College, St. Edwards University, Hudston-Tillotson University, Concordia University, and the Art Institute.
Do you have a bus stop and how often does it run?
Dobie is just a few steps from UT Campus, so depending on where you are attending, a bus may not be necessary. There is a UT bus stop right outside of the property that runs every 10-15 minutes. We also have partnered with Mega Bus. There are tickets sold on-site in our mall and the bus arrives/departs right outside of our parking garage. This makes it very easy for you to go home to see your family/friends or explore America!
I do not have any roommates in mind. Do you offer roommate matching?
Absolutely! Every student is unique, so during the leasing process we utilize our state-of-the-art roommate matching software that knows just the right questions to ensure the best matches possible.
What is included in the rent?
All of our studios and suites come with all utilities including electricity, water, sewage, trash, weekly housekeeping, internet, and cable! Your selected meal plan will also be included in the final cost. On-site parking is available in our adjacent garage at a discounted cost for our residents.
Do you offer furniture?
Yes, each unit is fully furnished with modern selections! Furnished units include an extra long twin size bed frame with mattress, drawer storage, desk, and chair. Suite floor plans also come with a leather couch, chair, dining room set, entertainment center, and coffee table. Oh, and did we mention? Our mattresses have pillow tops!
Do you allow pets?
Unfortunately, we do not allow pets.
What safety measurements are in place? What type of security do you provide?
We want to do everything we can to ensure that you have a safe living environment. Dobie does have an on-site security team that is providing services for our residents 24/7. Additionally, identification is required for entry after office hours by the Door Attendant. We encourage all of our residents to report any suspicious activity to them and as always dial 911 for emergencies.
How do I pay the rent and when is it due?
Rent is due on the 1st day of each month. We have an easy online payment system that allows you to pay any time of the day. You never have to worry about late fees if you opt into our automatic withdrawal option. You are also more than welcome to pay by check or money order in the office during regular business hours.
Can I pay for the entire school semester up front?
Yes! You may also pay by semester.
Do you provide on-site maintenance? How do we report any maintenance related issues?
Yes, we do have on-site maintenance. Our online Resident Portal makes it easy to submit work requests online directly to our office staff. Our maintenance staff is great at quickly responding to our residents’ needs! You will know when your work is completed via email by receiving a satisfaction survey. We love to hear the opinions of our residents so that we can continually improve our services.
I am ready to live here! What is the first step?
Great! We look forward to having you! We ask that the resident fills out an online application. It only takes 15-20 minutes! If you are signing with a guarantor, they may also complete their portion of the application at the same time. It’s that easy!
