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!
