Homes for Sale
University Park is a wonderful community that features an array of home designs and prices to suit a variety of price points.
Where to Live
Although largely a college community, University Park has a wide range of apartments and homes that are sure to meet any personality or budget. The area around Figueroa and Exposition Boulevard is made up mostly of townhouses and apartment buildings with fewer than 12 units. Most of these apartment complexes are one or two bedrooms, and are often occupied by students. For those looking for homes, traveling down Figueroa towards Normandy is a great place to start. The farther you move away from campus, the more two-bedroom and three-bedroom homes begin to appear.

University Park is a great place to enjoy some casual dining before a night out. The influence of college life on the surrounding neighborhood means that there is an abundance of food at relatively inexpensive prices. Many of the bars serve excellent comfort food, and it's not unusual to find great burgers and cocktails during happy hour. This neighborhood is also home to some of Los Angeles' best Mexican food, and hot dog carts are a popular post-USC football game meal for fans and locals alike.
