The city of West University — named for its proximity to Rice University — is located in the 77005 zip code. Home to 15,000 people who often commute to school and work, West U is a wealthy and fun area. Ancient oaks line many of its streets to create a calming natural atmosphere. Trendy shops and boutiques, low-key cafes and diners, and posh bars and restaurants fill the community.
West University is one of the wealthiest locations in Texas by per capita income. As a result, property values remain stable. Homes are available to rent or buy, though many people choose apartment living. West U is also incredibly family friendly. What was once a middle-class city of retirees is now a hotspot for well-to-do professionals to raise their children.
With its close proximity to Houston, you’ll never run out of fun activities. Spend an afternoon browsing at Rice University Art Gallery, take in a show at Main Street Theater, or visit Rice Village for a fashion-forward shopping experience like no other.
