Austin, TX, March 26, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- University of Texas students as well as those attending Austin Community College continue to rank The Castilian their #1 choice for student housing with new improvements almost complete and more on the way.
The Castilian’s current amenities include:
Newly renovated indoor heated swimming pool
Theater Lounge and Media Room
Wireless Apogee internet
Spacious study lounge overlooking the UT Tower
Award wining dining
Private bathrooms in each suite
Game and Recreational room
This past year The Castilian was updated with
New elevators and energy management systems
Plasma televisions in the facility’s common areas
Additional resident room upgrades
“The upgraded elevators and new energy management systems in the building are typically only things you would find in new high-rise construction. Some buildings in west campus have elected to simply remodel the interiors of their elevator cabs. All they are doing is masking outdated controls with a nice covering. We did things the right way at The Castilian and modernized the entire elevator system,” said Ben Modleski, Vice President for Campus Acquisitions. “Over the past 2 years, we have spent several million dollars taking care of this investment. We work diligently around the clock to maintain The Castilian and to provide a high quality environment for our residents. We’re proud of this facility and our Austin management team and look forward to another fun year ahead.”
Once you visit, it is easy to see why The Castilian continues to be the area’s most popular dorm. The Castilian has even had a well known Hollywood celebrity as a past resident.
“Matthew McConaughey lived at the Castilian when he was a student attending the University of Texas, said Dale Callison, Resident Manager of The Castilian. “We have a couple photos of him taking a swim with some co-eds in The Castilian pool. Additionally, this year, MTV held their auditions for the next season of the Real World at our facility. Just months earlier, The Dance Zone, one of our commercial tenants, recently partnered with America’s Best Dance Crew to hold tryouts as well.”

Located across the street and just west of the center of campus, The Castilian offers an extensive amenity package, award wining dining, a fantastic location with sweeping views of the UT campus and a professional management staff.
