University District

The University District is a combination of older stately homes, the University of Utah, all within walking distance of pizza parlors and coffee shops. The community is very progressive, but the residents have protected the historic nature of the area by securing zoning laws that restrict certain types of development; in fact, a large piece of the neighborhood is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  Many homeowners are renovating the old homes, ensuring that the historic neighborhood retains its classic architecture and character. Not unlike the avenues, many of the residents do not use cars, relying instead on bicycles, buses and the light rail system.
