Live colorfully.

University City offers homes you’ll love near the things you love to do. Our extensive housing choices range from apartments and condos near our future light-rail line to custom homes overlooking forested greenway trails. The fun’s close by, too, from international cuisine and live theater to college sports and arena concerts!

“University City offers residents a quality selection of housing at a diverse range of price points; it has a convenient and appealing quality of life.”
