Does anyone know of good apt. complexes (studios/efficiencies) near CTRC at 7979 Wurzbach Rd.? I'd like to find something within walking distance? Or can one find a room for rent?

Oh, should mention I'm looking for something suitable for a student. Will be studying most of the time so I really only need a quiet place to sleep and study that's good on utilities. Say ... how much are people's electric bills, given the air conditioning runs most of the year?

Thanks...

The only thing within walking distance are a couple of complexes at Medical and Wurzbach (behind the Wendy's and across from the Post Office, and a little further down at Von Scheele) and the Wurzbach Tower at Wurzbach and Merton Minter. The next nearest complexes are at Fredericksburg and Wurzbach, Louis Pasteur and Floyd Curl, and Hamilton Wolfe at Floyd Curl.

It is the epitome of "suburb". Although the Medical Center does have relatively high density compared to most of San Antonio's suburban area, is a bit more walkable, and has relatively good public transportation. But it's still pretty "sprawly".

Sprawl itself isn't always so bad (certainly can be), if there are trees around... But it's the sparwl of Walmarts and track houses that look identicle that pisses me off.....

Well, there are no Wal-Marts in the Med Center. But there is a neighborhood of tract houses nearby.

Traffic and people abound between 7am and 6pm. After that the place is almost deserted. (Lived in that area over two years)....
