Learn the Area with our Neighborhood Guides

Nov 11, 2015 4 years ago

We've created two resources aimed to help visitors and residents take advantage of all that University City has to offer. Inspired by the New York Times' '36 Hours' series, 36 Hours in University City is a guide filled with suggestions about how to best spend 36 hours in the neighborhood. It's a great resource for visitors to the area and residents looking for something new and different to do in their neighborhood.

Close at Hand, produced in partnership with the University City Review, is a comprehensive directory to the local businesses, amenities and resources available in the district. It covers a wide range of businesses, from food and retail to dentists and gyms to carpenters and locksmiths and more.  We encourage you to grow your community by supporting these businesses.

Both of these resources can be found free of charge at UCD's office at 3940 Chestnut Street and around the neighborhood. Pick one up and learn more about your community! You can also view the publications below or download them here.
