Known as the Grand Center Arts District, some call it Midtown, we call it "vibrant". The neighborhood around the University Plaza Apartments puts you right in the middle of educational institutions, cultural resources, and some of the most unique restaurants in the city. Close to SLU, UMSL's midtown campus, and a short drive away from Harris Stowe and the SLU Medical School, University Plaza gives you a chance to live where you learn. You're in the same building with Gary's, and right across the street from the City Diner. A short walk or drive takes you to Vito's, and a little farther and you have access to all the restaurants and nightlife of Midtown Alley.

If cultural institutions are your thing, the Grand Center Arts District doesn't skimp on that either. University Plaza is literally across the street from performance venues such as the Fox Theatre, Powell Hall, the Sheldon, and Grandel Theatre. If art is more your style, the Comtemporary Art Museum, the Kranzberg Arts Center, and The Pulitzer Foundations for the Arts are just a few of the many options available to you.

Once you've exhausted all that Grand Center has to offer, it's great location provides for a short drive to all the nightlife in the Central West End, the beauty of Forest Park, and the Zoo and Museums in it. It also offers a quick drive to downtown for Cardinals, Blues, and CITY games, and all the excitement that Washington Avenue, Laclede's Landing, and Soulard have to offer.
