A new seven-story luxury apartment complex for students has recently been completed on the University of Texas Austin’s West Campus. The building, dubbed The Ruckus Lofts, offers 46 units and 165 beds and comprises a game room, cyber café, student conference rooms, study cubbies, coffee bar, and Sky Gym.

Each of the 46 units provides students with hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, nine-foot ceilings, and quartz countertops. Some of the units are also equipped with balconies that provide views of the UT campus.

The Ruckus Lofts were designed by Mark Hart Architects and built by Motivado Group. C|P|H Structural Engineering Inc., was the engineer of record for the project. Construction started on June 1, 2016 and completed three weeks ahead of schedule just over one year later. Students moved in prior to the start of fall 2017 classes.
