University Park Neighborhood – Your New Home

The Lindley Team at Mortgage Express | 503.517.8641

University Park is located in North Portland and is bordered by Cathedral Park, St. Johns, University Park and Linnton neighborhoods. It is named after the small private Catholic college, University of Portland. About 3,000 students attend the campus, found near the south end of University Park.

University Park’s neighborhood vibe gives a young, vibrant feeling. While the college is in the south end of the neighborhood, most of the businesses are gathered along the northern border, Lombard Street.

The majority of residents are college students, though many professors and other professionals also live here. From young married couples living in their first house, to college kids living in dorms, to families with kids who live in mid-sized, historic homes, University Park is home to a diverse range of people who will make you feel at home.

The area also shares its name with a nice park, known for grassy fields and nice, newer playgrounds, making it a popular gathering space for college students and families alike. Many residents are active, outdoorsy people; you’ll see plenty of people walking their dogs, biking, or jogging.
