University City may possibly be the most centrally located community in all San Diego County. It is in great proximity to Downtown as much as it is to Del Mar. It sits nestled between the 5 and 805 with the 52 just to the south and the 56 not too far away to the north. Without a doubt, it is this phenomenal location that has kept University City among the most desired neighborhoods in San Diego. Of course, it also doesn't hurt to virtually be a suburb of La Jolla, one of the country's best known luxury communities.
University City is also known as UTC, which stands for University Town Centre. It is home to the UTC mall, which is both a tourist and locals destination. The neighborhood derives it's name from the fact that the University of California, San Diego is located in very close proximity. It is a wonderful campus that particurlaily excells at science and economics. UCSD is a great feeder school to our city's thriving bio tech industry.
