University District

Also known as “Harewood,” this neighbourhood centered around University Village Mall lies between Vancouver Island University and downtown. There’s a strong spirit of community in the area, which is made up of students and families living in affordable apartments and modest homes that range from 1920s bungalows to split-levels.

The University District is within walking distance of the university and only a few minutes’ drive or bus ride from the downtown waterfront’s shops and restaurants. Staying active is convenient with the aquatic centre, ice centre and several parks with hiking trails nearby.
