There are two distinct parts of University City divided by Rose Canyon, featuring the Rose Canyon Open Space preserve, and railroad tracks passing through it. South of Rose Canyon lies the older part of University City, built in the 1960s and historically referred to as University Square, centered on Governor Drive. It is a mostly residential neighborhood along Governor Drive with many single family homes. Just southwest of the Governor Drive exit from I-805 is a commercially zoned area containing office parks with low-rise buildings. South UC was developed primarily in the 1960s and 70s.

The newer part of University City lies north of Rose Canyon; it is usually referred to as University Towne Centre (UTC). The entire area has also been nicknamed the "Golden Triangle" by commercial developers.

The topography of University City includes mesas and canyons such as Rose Canyon, San Clemente Canyon, and finger canyons that provide much of the open space. The canyons provide wildlife habitats with about 100 bird species migrating through the area plus natural views and opportunities for hiking, biking, and birding. The canyons are fire-managed and thus present small wildfire risks. In addition, motorists drive around the canyons, with I-5, Genessee Ave, and the I-805 being about 1 mile apart from each other.

For one, it's a great place to own rental property, I own two condos in that area and they cashflow nicely. It's also a great place to live and work. You can find lots more info here: http://roycekemp.com/san-diego-area-info/university-city

University City is a neighborhood in the center of San Diego. It is not affiliated with UCSD but UCSD is located in this neighborhood. Commonly known as UTC, this community is sandwiched between the I-5 and I-805 freeways.

Due to its great centrality and the university, this is popular neighborhood for buying rentals and for those who work nearby. Condo prices start in the low $300's and single family homes start in the $600'a...

Please let me know if you need any other information.

Good Afternoon,
It is near UCSD, on the east side of the I-5 and north of the 52. It is a neighborhood that derived it's name from UCSD. It is also sometimes referred to as UTC due to the University Town Center, shopping mall, which is also nearby. If you are interested in property there, please feel free to contact me directly using the information below. I sold a condo in the area a couple of months ago and know it quite well.
