University City is a community known for its great diversity. It blends strong suburban neighborhoods with urban multiple family apartments, condominiums and single family housing. Neighboring the St. Louis County government seat and Washington University, many professors and students call University City home. The Delmar Loop, one of University City’s two business districts, is internationally renowned for its outstanding entertainment, restaurants and unique shopping.
The community is also known for its emphasis on the arts, with the annual University City summer concert series, musical performances in the Delmar Loop, the Center of Creative Arts (COCA) and much more. The University City High School Jazz Band, choir and other groups add to the arts-focused community.
