Living in University City

University City rentals come in two distinct flavors. North of Rose Canyon Open Space, which divides the area, you’ll find the newer half of the neighborhood. Sometimes referred to as University Towne Centre or UTC, this section contains high-rises, apartment complexes, shopping centers, and lots of students from the nearby University of California. South of Rose Canyon lies the older half of the neighborhood. Built up in the 1960s, this section contains more single-family homes, an older population, and fewer retail areas.

University City used to feel like a college town. It has, however, blossomed over the years into a major urban node. Times have been so good here that the neighborhood earned the nickname “The Golden Triangle.” It’s an area that seems to draw success. Near here you’ll find UCSD, Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, and the Torrey Pines science research area. These neighbors have helped transform University City into a high-intensity, mixed-use community.

University City Lifestyle and Entertainment

The San Diego Westfield University Towne Centre is the largest of three shopping centers in University City. There you’ll find a Pottery Barn, an Apple Store, restaurants, and much more. In the southern half of University City, there’s also enough to keep residents engaged. Head to the intersection of Governor and Genesee to find a grocery, a pharmacy, and a few restaurants. Nightlife in the neighborhood is mostly limited to bar hopping.

There are a number of parks and recreation centers in University City. Doyle Recreation Center and Park has separate off-leash areas for small and large dogs. Rose Canyon Open Space is the largest swath of green by a wide margin, but there are other large parks around if you’re looking for somewhere to enjoy the outdoors.

University City Info and the Rental Market

There’s enough going on in University City to attract a broad range of residents. You’ll find college professors, military families, retirees, students, and professionals living here. In general, the populace is younger north of Rose Canyon. While the south side of the neighborhood is single-family homes and condos, the north side is all condos, townhomes, and apartments. The average rent for a two-bedroom in University City is $1,863 a month.

If you’re travelling around the University City area, the new SuperLoop public transit bus system will be a big boon. Other Metropolitan Transit System buses operate in the neighborhood, but most residents rely on cars to get around.

University City Resources

You can find a United States Post Office on either side of Rose Canyon. The North University Community Branch of the San Diego Public Library is on Judicial Street. There’s another branch in the southern half of the neighborhood, the University Community Library, on Governor Drive. University City falls within San Diego City Council District 1. Scripps Memorial and UCSD’s Thornton Hospital are both in University City.
