University City

VIBE: Youthful, free-spirited, Progressive

This neighborhood is Home to the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and more than 20 regional offices for Fortune 500 companies.

University City is essentially (but not officially) its own city and split into two parts (University North & South). Located 20 minutes to the city, the university and its lively student culture have brought college-town spirit—not to mention fun pubs, dining hot spots and extensive retail—to the area such as Ikea and Top Golf.

During the week, the neighborhood is all business. With more than 20 regional offices for Fortune 500 companies in this area, University Executive Park, University Research Park and Innovation Park employ thousands, and the completion of the LYNX Blue Line light rail extension makes access to Center City faster than ever. Local and National homebuilders are taking advantage of the fast growing area which is driving huge demand to home sales.
