LV took this opportunity to exercise a fresh approach to student housing. LV aimed to create a small, boutique-style property with a community focus and a disruptive set of amenity spaces. Ruckus drew its name from the Honda Ruckus, a top-selling scooter seen frequently across the UT Austin campus. The building broke ground in 2016 and was delivered ahead of schedule.
Thoughtfully-designed spaces capture the vivacity of UT Austin students and provide residents with an amenity-rich experience to complement the college lifestyle.
Ruckus’ assortment of study spaces set a new standard for academic accommodation at UT Austin, as this project includes four glass-front study rooms equipped with oversized tables and 65” SMART TV’s, custom individual study nooks, and Google Fiber connectivity.
