The University District lies between VIU and the hill above Downtown. It’s very convenient to downtown and the university, as well as being close to wilderness parks such as Collery Dam and the Morrell Sanctuary. This is an older part of the city having once been a rural community. There are a variety of larger home on larger lots and also small infill homes. In the past few years this part of town has been transforming from it’s former identity as Harewood – sometimes nicknamed “Scarwood”, into “The University District” in part thanks to the growing university, an influx of young professional families and students. Also transformed is Harewood Mall, now University Plaza.
