North Campus is an area defined by its proximity to the University of Texas at Austin.  One of the most densely populated areas of of the city, the neighborhood is bounded by 38th St. to the north, Duval/San Jacinto St. to the east, 27th St. to the south, and Guadalupe St. to the west.  As the area is known for its immediate access to the UT campus, it boasts a large student population.

The North Loop area boasts two notable historic communities, Aldridge Place and Hemphill Park.  Developed by Lewis Hancock beginning in 1912, Aldridge Place expanded rapidly in the 1920s, fueled by the retail boom and rail lines along Guadalupe St.  By the 1970s, it, and much of the North Campus area in general, had become heavily populated by students, with most of the modest single-family structures having been converted into multi-unit rental properties. Despite this fact, a new generation of home owners began purchasing and restoring the homes in the late 1970s, reestablishing single-family, owner-occupied dominance to Aldridge Place and Hemphill Park. Although North Campus is not a dedicated historic district, the North University Neighborhood Association is active in maintaining the historic character, as well as mediating issues between homeowners and renters.

North Campus boasts one major green space, Adams Hemphill Park, which contains a green belt and a modest playground.  Hancock Public Golf Course is just over a mile away.  Central Park, which offers a semi-shaded walking trail and water features, is less than a mile away.  The park is near a large shopping complex containing a Central Market grocery, from which it derives its name, and provides a well-lit area to run and walk at night.

Guadalupe St. is a major retail thoroughfare boasting a variety of locally-owned businesses, including Wheatsville Food Co-Op, Nice Kicks, and Calla Florist.  Local eateries include Trudy’s, Torchy’s Tacos, Kerbey Lane Café, Dirty Martin’s Place, and Freedmen’s Bar.

            North Campus is zoned to Lee Elementary and Bryker Woods Elementary, O Henry Middle School and Kealing Middle School, and Austin High School and McCallum High School.  Private schools in the area include Kirby Hall School, Hyde Park Baptist School, and St. Paul Lutheran School.

Due to the high proportion of renters in the area, as well as the long residential history of most home owners, buying real estate in North Campus can be a challenge.  The median home price hovers at just over $230,000, but pricing can be difficult, given the unique and historic nature of many of the properties in the community.  The median rent is one of the highest in the city, reflecting the desirability of the location for students.
