We’ve had a string of 100+ degree days and summer is still in full effect but with University of Texas at Austin classes starting back in just a few weeks it’s time to make the big move! Moving can be a very stressful time of year for many university students making the trek back to West Campus, North Campus, or Hyde Park so we wanted to give everyone a little information to hopefully make your life easier!
There’s so much to think about when moving and I know that setting up utilities can be
one of the most annoying parts of it all. Multiple phone calls to figure out if you just need the City of Austin, or do you need gas as well. Do you live in a condo that covers some of these utilities? It can all get a little confusing plus when it comes time to set up cable and internet that can mean making multiple calls to see who has the best deal.
If you haven’t used it before, check out 360 Home Connect as an easy, 1 stop shop to set up all your utilities, cable, and internet for free! They make money by receiving a commission from the cable and internet providers but will help setup all of your utilities through the city and gas company for free. Often times they have better deals on cable and internet as well!
If you’d prefer to set everything up on your own, here are a few helpful links and numbers:
City of Austin Utilities – 512-494-9400
