Below is some general information about West University:

West University Place, often called West University or West U for short, is a city located in the U.S. state of Texas within the Houston–Sugar Land–Baytown metropolitan area and southwestern Harris County. As of the 2010 U.S. Census, the population of the city was 14,787. It is nicknamed “The Neighborhood City” and is mainly a bedroom community for upper-class families. West University Place is surrounded by the cities of Bellaire, Houston, and Southside Place. The United States Postal Service uses “Houston” as the city designation for all West University Place addresses, although the actual name of “West University Place” is also acceptable. As of 2011, West University Place is the fifth highest fraction of households with incomes $150,000 or greater. Almost all street names in West University Place are allusions to universities, colleges, and poets throughout the United States and the world.

The city incorporated in 1924 because Houston was reluctant to extend power lines that far from the city center. West University, unlike Houston Heights, did not consolidate into the City of Houston. Because of the 1923 incorporation, Houston did not incorporate West University Place’s territory into its city limits, while Houston annexed surrounding areas that were unincorporated. In 1939, the municipality refused to consolidate, later adopting a formal city charter the following year. The city had around 15,000 residents in the 1960s and the 1970s. The city had 12,714 people in 1990.

The typical lot size in West University is 5,000 square feet. The original housing stock of West University Place consisted of mid-20th century bungalows and cottages. Prior to 1992 the City of West University place liberalized its development rules, allowing for new houses to be built in the city. As lot sizes were typically about 50 feet (15 m) by 120 feet (37 m), the houses constructed were Georgian houses described by Don Stowers of the Houston Post as “lot hugging.” Because nearby Bellaire had larger, more inexpensive lots, many area home seekers began to consider Bellaire. In a 15-year period ending in 2002 around half of the existing houses in West University Place were torn down and replaced with newer houses. In 2001 Katherine Feser of the Houston Chronicle said that houses selling for over $1 million were common in West University.

As of the census of 2000, there were 14,211 people, 5,286 households, and 4,059 families residing in West University. The population density was 7,068.6 people per square mile (2,729.8/km²). There were 5,543 housing units at an average density of 2,757.1 per square mile (1,064.8/km²). The racial makeup of the city was 92.37% White, 0.50% African American, 0.07% Native American, 4.74% Asian, 0.02% Pacific Islander, 0.90% from other races, and 1.41% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 4.72% of the population. There were 5,286 households out of which 43.0% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 69.0% were married couples living together, 6.0% had a female householder with no husband present, and 23.2% were non-families. 19.4% of all households were made up of individuals and 6.6% had someone living alone who was 65 years of age or older. The average household size was 2.69 and the average family size was 3.11.

Claudia Feldman of the Houston Chronicle described West University as a “wealthy city inside a city” and “a tidy, orderly community, one where furniture matches, bills get paid and accomplished parents raise accomplished children.” John Nova Lomax, a journalist, stated in a 2008 Houston Press article that, due to the growth and dominance of Houston, municipal enclaves with their own services, including West University Place, “are little more than glorified neighborhoods.” As of 2011, 85% of adults living in West U have bachelor’s degrees, making it the community with the highest percentage of adults with bachelors degrees in the Southern United States.
