Located along the Puget Sound with a stunning backdrop of the Olympic Mountains and Mount Rainier, the city of University Place is one of the most visually stunning places in the Evergreen State to call home.

Living in University Place

One of the biggest reasons to live in a University Place apartment for rent is the city's desirable location. The city is halfway between the capital city of Olympia and the state's largest city, Seattle, so living in University Place apartments puts you between the heart of it all. The city also has several fun events, including Duck Daze, a celebration of the end of the rainy season, and the Cider Squeeze, a fantastic old-fashioned cider harvest festival that features bluegrass music, vendors that serve apple pie a la mode and fresh-squeezed cider using cider presses, a long-standing tradition in the community. University Place has around 31,000 residents, so living here has plenty of small-town charm, but still puts you near two large cities so you don't feel isolated.

University Place Apartments and Cost of Living

Living in University Place means you can save money and yet still be in the middle of everything in the Evergreen State.
