Inspiring a Sense of Place
We invite you to join in the discovery and building of what can be. We invite you to join the University District.
The University District is about sense of place…where quiet neighborhoods and quaint local shops merge with the energy of a major public university and a thriving health care system. It’s a place where change is not only envisioned, but lived out. It’s about people who appreciate and embrace diversity – in thought, culture and economy. It’s a place of reawakening that captures the Northern Colorado heritage and explores a new destiny – one that people want to be part of.
The University of Northern Colorado, the state’s premier student-centered university since 1889, has approximately 12,000 students studying a wide variety of programs in education, the arts, sciences, humanities and business. The UNC experience combines a solid liberal arts foundation, relevant professional coursework, innovative technology and real-world opportunities to prepare students for a life of learning.
In 1869 the Union Colony and town of Greeley was founded as a ‘utopian’ community and is now home to over 90,000 residents. Situated on the high plains of Colorado, it boasts a community of thriving, innovative businesses and industry leaders. It is an area rich with cultural, historic, medical, agricultural, energy, entertainment and recreational resources and an enviable lifestyle. Greeley has earned top rankings for its reputation for new job growth, health care, sports venues and best places to retire.
