University City Real Estate
Located in one of the most easily accessible living spaces in San Diego, University City is in an area often referred to as the Golden Triangle, bounded by Interstates 5, 805, and Highway 52. The name comes from the presence of part of the campus of the University of California San Diego on the western edge of the neighborhood where many students, faculty, and employees of the university live. The area is served by great elementary and middle schools as well as University City High School, part of the San Diego School District.
The topography of University City is mesas and canyons such as Rose Canyon and San Clemente Canyon, which provide opportunities for hiking, biking, and exploring.

The main shopping area in this area is University Towne Center (UTC), a modern mall with big-name retail stores, ice rink, and relaxed shopping environment.
