University City Amenities
UC is a very desirable area for students, professionals, and families alike because of its central location within the county and proximity to the University, freeway and shopping. The area has also been getting ready for its newest addition, the trolley! The San Diego trolley system, which is currently only offering service up to the Old Town area (11 miles south of UCSD), will soon be extended to reach the University City area. The project, which began in 2016, is due to be completed sometime in 2021.
Besides offering service to UCSD, the trolley will also be stopping at University Town Center Mall, also known simply, as UTC. The mall, which has been going through a change of its own, started a complete renovation in 2017. The remodel is due to be completed sometime in 2018. Here you can find an upscale movie theatre, department stores, restaurants, and more.
