When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.

One of the really interesting characteristics about the University City

safety from crime, the neighborhood is ideal for prospective or
already-enrolled college students. Between semesters and during
school breaks, you'll notice that the excitement here fluctuates with
the college seasons. Despite the excitement however, parents of college-age
