West University Place, TX Overview

Evolving from a concept of placing country homes in a suburban setting, West University Place has emerged as one of the region's more desirable communities.  Although the community is incorporated and is proud of its unique identity in the metropolitan area, it benefits from close association with Houston.  Area youth attend schools in the Houston Independent School District, although the library is part of the Harris County Library System.  Residents enjoy a multi-purpose community center with a stage that draws together friends and neighbors for events and performances.  Six lush parks grace the town, and the opportunities for recreational programs or sports leagues are many in a truly family-oriented atmosphere.

The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
