West University Place Map: Three Terrific Maps Of West University

Developed by former Tennessee Governor Ben Hooper in 1917, the West University neighborhood got its name due to its close proximity to Rice Institute.

West University Place is surrounded by the cities of Houston, Bellaire, and Southside Place.

Well within the Houston Inner Loop, the West U neighborhood is bordered by Bellaire Blvd, South Freeway, and Southwest Freeway.

This close proximity to major freeways provides West University residents easy access to Downtown Houston, the Museum District, Houston Medical Center, the Galleria, Greenway Plaza, and Montrose.

West University Place: Small Town Feel Within A Bustling City

Proud of their neighborhood’s “residential image”, West University Place homeowners have tough zoning and deed restrictions. These protect the city from industrial and commercial development. In an era of rapid metropolitan growth, West University has emerged as an island of residential stability.


Inner Neighborhood Map Of West University

In order to preserve the beauty and integrity of the neighborhood, current ordinances require that each lot contain a certain amount of open space. This prohibits large new construction homes or remodeled homes from occupying the total yard.

A recent addition to the City has been the Urban Forester who protects the neighborhood from losing too many of its cherished trees. As a result, West University Place has maintained its small town atmosphere with a very organized community planning.

West University Place: Neighborhoods

West University Place has emerged as one of Houston’s most desirable neighborhoods. As part of its goal to keep the West U area well-organized, the neighborhood has been divided into “blocks”. There are a total of 26 sections or blocks within West University (see West University Place map below).

Each block contains original bungalows, recently remodeled homes, as well as an abundance of beautiful new and recent construction. Contemporary, Tudor, New Orleans, traditional Georgian, and French designed homes blend harmoniously into the neighborhood.
