Dallas apartments perfect for SMU students

Entering college life can be rough–especially when you’re new to the area. And with over 11,000 students attending Southern Methodist University (or SMU), finding an affordable Dallas apartment that meets your needs as a student might seem like a challenge. While it’s not a truly defined area, our SMU neighborhood is a collection of luxury apartments located in walking or shuttle distance to SMU’s campus, local nightlife, groceries, and restaurants that we feel are sure to get (and keep!) you pumped about your time in the area!

SMU apartments give you easy access to campus–and the rest of Dallas!

Everything you need
Bringing a car? Not bringing a car? Not an issue! Whatever your transportation sitch, this neighborhood has you covered. Some of our Dallas apartments are located right on SMU Blvd, so distance isn’t an issue if you’re down for a short walk. If you’d like a little space between you and your soon-to-be alma mater, the local DART rail has a stop at Mockingbird Station, and the Mustang Shuttle Route runs through some of the nearby neighborhoods. Getting groceries and feeling fit won’t be a problem in this area either with nearby favorites like Central Market and LA Fitness!

Everything you want
Being a student doesn’t mean sacrificing comfort! In fact, many of our SMU apartment options are detailed with luxury features, study nooks, and plenty of on-site amenities like state-of-the-art fitness centers and resort-style pools!

Getting your grind on? Local java house Union Coffee offers plenty of study space and occasionally some low-key shows, perfect for getting a caffeine break in! The shops and restaurants at Mockingbird Station are a go-to in the area for sneaking some retail therapy between classes or brunching with friends, and keeping up to speed with the latest indie films has never been easier with the Angelika Film Center right around the corner! If you’re looking to keep close to campus, the east side of SMU blvd plays host to several patio hot spots and sports bars for those Mustang watch parties.

In the heart of it
We mentioned how rad your location is, right? SMU apartments are located right in the heart of Dallas, just minutes outside of Downtown, Uptown, and nearby Knox-Henderson neighborhoods! Whatever floats your boat, you’re sure to find it near one of our many Dallas apartment listings, because you’re in the center of it all!
