Home to the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and more than 20 regional offices for Fortune 500 companies, University City is a fast paced and innovative area.
University City is named for one important tenant: The University of North Carolina at Charlotte. The university and its lively student culture have brought college-town spirit, fun pubs, dining hot spots and a host of retail shopping to the area. On football Saturdays, crowds dressed in green, white and gold pile cheer on the NCAA Division 1 Charlotte 49ers. During the week, the neighborhood is business and learning, and the completion of the LYNX Blue Line light rail extension has made access to Center City faster than ever.
