When preparation meets opportunity.
A vibrant area with everything needed to move forward. University City is a great place for existing businesses and startups to be and grow.
Since the establishment of UNC Charlotte in response to a rising demand for education generated by advancement in technology, University City has stepped up to meet the current and future needs of the business market.
The area is now home to large, mid-sized and small businesses, students, families and young professionals who come here to learn, create, plant roots and thrive. Together, these businesses and individuals make up University City, Charlotte’s second largest employment center outside of Center City.
“From the business perspective, it makes great sense to be here because of the location and access.”– Dr. Michael Dockery, Ortho Carolina.
