Austin Residence Complex (ARC) is located on the south side of the Kennesaw Campus. Each of these Premium Apartments comes with a full kitchen, washer/dryer unit, dishwasher, microwave, and full kitchen appliances.

Phase II of Austin Residence Complex opened in August 2012, expanding the community and commemorating the ten-year anniversary of the opening of the original phase. This community includes buildings 1200, 1300, and 1400. Phase II also offers residents elevator access, a large outdoor amphitheater, and ample outdoor recreation space.
