OK, my friend (she's a Texas Interdisciplinary Plan Specialist with UT Austin) said that there are cheap hotels closer to UT Austin than the Quinta that I mentioned but she can't speak for their safety. She said that the New Student Services page on the UT Austin website has a listing of hotels that they recommend. Good luck.

The La Quinta Inn on East Oltorf and I35 is about 5 miles from campus and you are never far from a Capital Metro or a UT shuttle stop. I have a friend who usually works freshman orientation for UT Austin and I'm waiting to hear back from her to see if there is a hotel that offers a deal for freshmen coming in for orientation. I'll let you know if I hear anything. Good luck.
