I used to live in University City. During my childhood, I comfortably played outside constantly, ran lemonade stands, observed various garage sales, and really appreciate the memory of safe and family friendly surroundings in University City.

The University City area of charlotte is the home of the largest area university, UNCC. The school makes the area very modern and fast paced. There are several laid back and cool places to hang out and grab a meal, and everything is within about a 10 minute drive. The University area is also close to the main interstates which make it very easy to get to the area or give directions. I enjoy living in this area for all of the above reasons.
It’s very decent I like it out over here. The community is a great environment it’s so friendly and peaceful.
