University Heights Real Estate Investment Properties

Tucked between North Park and Hillcrest, University Heights offers plenty of charm in a small, cozy neighborhood. University Heights centers on Park Boulevard and Adams Avenue and is home to a growing community of bars, eateries, and specialty shops.

University Heights is a relatively small area. Some data suggest that the neighborhood offers a population of just over 12,000 residents. The neighborhood is mainly home to recent graduates and young families. The name comes from its initial plans to build a university in the area. This eventually led to the creation of State Normal School, which eventually became the first San Diego State University campus. SDSU eventually moved its campus, but the neighborhood kept its name.

In terms of homes, University Heights offers a mix of craftsman-style bungalows, but you can easily find a variety of housing options, including apartments, condos, cottages, and million-dollar mansions.

Restaurants and Attractions in University Heights

University Heights offers an endless amount of hip restaurants, bars, and coffee shops for all budgets and tastes. Small Bar, which, as the name implies, is a cozy little spot, offers an expansive selection of brews. Blind Lady Ale House couples great local beers with old world-style pizzas topped with organic ingredients. For a truly unique experience, visit Polite Provisions. This apothecary-style bar serves up microbrews and craft cocktails in a stylishly retro space.

For food, start at Twiggs, a laidback coffeehouse that also serves freshly made pastries, breakfast biscuits, and Panini sandwiches. To get your Mexican food fix, visit El Zarape, a popular spot for authentic Mexican food. Soda and Swine is your go-to for savory, spicy meatballs served with your choice of sauce, cheese, and style (slider, sub, or with spaghetti).

For fun activities, the area offers a variety of antique and boutique shops. Head to the acclaimed Diversionary Theater for some amazing local productions. The Diversionary Theater is dedicated to providing quality productions for LGBTQ communities in San Diego.

Schools in University Heights

University Heights offers one public elementary school, Birney Elementary, which is served by the San Diego Unified School District. Roosevelt International Middle School is also served by the SDUSD. University Heights is also home to Aseltine School, a small private school that serves kindergarten through twelfth grade.

While there are no public high schools within the neighborhood, residents can attend nearby high schools, including Hoover High School, Academy of Our Lady of Peace, and Arroyo Paseo Charter High School.
