At University Place, we appreciate the magnitude of your decision in choosing a retirement living environment. It represents change, a move we are sure you will look back on as one of the best you’ve ever made.
After experiencing the security and freedom that comes with a lifestyle free from home ownership worries, many of our residents wonder why they didn’t come to University Place Senior Living Community sooner. They blossom in the ability to enjoy active and energetic living while having the quiet solitude of their own home.
Luxury is Standard
Select your apartment from a variety of one- or two-bedroom floor plans [link] to ensure that your home fits your lifestyle. Surrounded by your furniture and possessions, you’ll feel immediately at home in the privacy of your own apartment. Each apartment includes amenities synonymous with luxurious living—wall-to-wall carpeting, individual washer and dryer, private patio or balcony and individual air and heat controls. Electrical service, water fees, local telephone and basic cable television are all included in your monthly fee.
The kitchen comes fully equipped with full-size appliances, including a microwave oven, frost-free refrigerator/freezer, garbage disposal and dishwasher.
And not to be overlooked is weekly house-keeping, which includes linen service and staff maintenance personnel.
Enjoy elegant, yet casual dining where cuisine and décor are comparable to Houston’s finest restaurants. You can select from an array of tempting recipes prepared fresh daily. Lunch, set in a bistro atmosphere, offers a wide variety of sandwiches, omelets, soups and salads, while the evening meal is more elegant. The salad bar features everything from seasonal fresh fruits to chilled vegetable creations. Homemade soups are always available. Fill your plate with entrées featuring fish, chicken, pork and beef, and accompany your selection with wonderfully fresh vegetables guaranteed to please the palate. A vast dessert bar filled with fresh-baked delights offers a delicious way to complete your meal.
Friendly waitstaff ensure that every moment of your meal is a dining pleasure. Guests are always welcome in the dining room, or on special occasions, host a gathering in the private Garrett Dining Room.
Hobbies and Activities

Woodworkers and hobbyists can take advantage of a vast array of power or hand tools available in the woodworker’s shop.
Celebrate life with entertainment comparable to that found in Houston’s theater district. Curl up with a good book or the latest magazine in the library for a cozy afternoon.

You may just relish a relaxing visit to the heated Jacuzzi or a friendly game of cards in the game room.

There are also great opportunities for the volunteer . Serve on the Residents’ Association or any number of other capacities within University Place, Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital or the professional building.
One of the most important benefits in selecting your new home is the carefree lifestyle. Your days can be filled with social events, rather than time-consuming home repairs or yard work. Exercise at the Wellness Center [link] with your complimentary membership.
Meals are served by a friendly staff. Tipping is not permitted. There’s no need to pay for weekly housekeeping either because it’s included along with weekly laundry of all linens. Forget the woes of leaking water faucets or dishwashers. Our maintenance staff sees to all repairs. Imagine just calling for assistance when you are moving large furniture items.
