University City Homes for Sale

University City originally got its start in 1960 as a planned community of 2,500 acres intended for employees, professors & students of the University of California San Diego. The community has expanded however, into a middle-class suburban community of families both associated with the University and separate from it.

The University City homes for sale enjoy both a small town atmosphere in South University City & a more urban feel in North University City for entertainment & shopping.
