Why Taos?

Taos is a unique and affordable student community located right on the Drag!

Taos is a student co-op and is democratically managed by the members who live there. Members pool resources and work together to lower our housing costs and gain more control over our living environment.

The five-story building boasts views of the UT Tower and easy access to restaurants and shops on the Drag. Taos is the closest co-op to UT-Austin, across the street from the northwest corner of campus.

The Taos Community

Taos is more than just a building—it’s a community of people who take care of each other. Taos strives to be a safe place to grow and change as a person. Many Taos members find that this strong community is the most important aspect of co-op living and often remark on the lifelong friendships that are formed here.

Taos houses 117 students pursuing all kinds of degrees and many hailing from international universities. At Taos, you will have the opportunity to meet friends and learn about different cultures from around the world. Taos members also enjoy many educational and leisure time activities including intramural sports, co-op baseball (Taos is the home of the Mighty Corndogs Baseball Team) and camping.

The “ideal Taosian” is anyone who will respect other members and do their weekly chores (labor) to support the house. Do you want to be a part of a community that cares about each other? You can! Do you just need an affordable place to live and never want to talk to anyone? You can! At Taos, we are proud to accept all sorts of people. So apply today!
