University City is a neighborhood of approximately 56,000 people in northwestern San Diego and home to the University of California – San Diego (UCSD). University City is often mistaken for UTC, or Westfield University Towne Center, a popular shopping center in the community.
University City is divided by scenic Rose Canyon. The older part of University City, built in the 1960s and widely known as University Square, is south of Rose Canyon and centered on Governor Drive. North of Rose Canyon is the newer part of University City and home of Westfield UTC.
University City was originally supposed to serve as a residential haven for the University of California, San Diego employees and students, where both college presidents and janitors would be able to live in the same community. Instead, U.C. became a middle-class community that celebrates its children and neighborhood, supportive of schools, sports leagues at Standley Park, and several houses of worship. The community is far different from the original goals of the planners in the 60s.
The community association, which was dormant for several years, was revitalized in 2001 and has been a voice for the community. Now, the newsletter comes out once a month. The street banner project has been established. Standley Park continues to act as a town hall as well as a site for activities and athletics, classes and meetings.
University City is “more than a neighborhood,” and families continue to enjoy the small town feel of South U.C. while looking to North U.C. for urban entertainment and shopping. The University of California, San Diego is still an important neighbor to us.
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.
