  WHAT’S LIVING IN University District LIKE?

The University District – or U District as everyone calls it – is the neighborhood that surrounds the beautiful campus of the University of Washington and its 45,000 students. As you'd expect of a university town, there are tons of restaurants, bars, and music venues.

Still, there aren't just students here: it's also a popular area for young professionals given the buzz of activities and easy access to other parts of the city thanks to U District's great public transport.

U-District is bordered on the north by Roosevelt and Ravenna, on the east by Laurelhurst, on the south by Portage Bay (body of water), and on the west by Wallingford.
