About South Campus

The "south campus” neighborhood is generally viewed as the area south of West Second Street between the downtown commercial zone.(opens in new window) (Broadway and Main Street) and the Union Pacific railroad tracks. This area is known for its 19th-century historic homes, fraternity and sorority houses, highly concentrated student housing including both homes and smaller apartments, and a small but vibrant commercial area at the corner of Fifth and Ivy Streets.

Given the historic nature of many of the area homes, the proximity to downtown, the location of Greek life housing, and the social aspects of the Fifth and Ivy Streets commercial district, this neighborhood typically commands slightly higher rental rates in this highly concentrated student-aged neighborhood.

Ease of Access and Parking

Many of the streets within south campus are improved with sidewalks (although watch your step as many of the older tree roots have wreaked havoc with the sidewalks).

Biking routes are limited in this neighborhood yet cyclists, pedestrians, and vehicle traffic all compete for access so caution should be exercised at all times.

Street parking is very limited in the residential areas and parking meters will be found on most streets beginning at Fifth Street heading towards the campus. Maximum time limits on these meters can be as short as 36 minutes and as long as 10 hours (typically the farther away from campus, the longer the meter limits). Traffic meters operate Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. and are patrolled regularly. The University and City both have off-street parking lots but these lots are typically impacted by pre-sold permits. Students can check out the availability of parking permits at Student Financial Services(opens in new window).
