University District Real Estate

Like South Nanaimo and the Old City, the University District is distinguished by its greater concentration of students, young families, and artsy types. It's a very convenient place to live, being close to downtown yet close to the mountain - and also close to the Parkway expressway and VIU.

Note: While the University Village shopping mall is only a few blocks from the university, the Real Estate Board calls that area "South Nanaimo". Homes in that area are listed on my South Nanaimo page. Or, search all Harewood listings.

RE/MAX Of Nanaimo

Recreation and Amenities

The malls of North Nanaimo are easily accessed via the Parkway. But the lakes and ocean and mountain are even closer:

  • Hiking trails (easy to alpine) - 6 minute drive
  • Dog off leash areas - 5 minute drive
  • Rocky beaches - 8 minute drive
  • Lake swimming - 6 minute drive
  • Nanaimo River swimming - 18 minute drive

University District Home Styles

This area can be imagined as a wide strip that curves back on itself as it drops in elevation:

  • Highest tier: The College Heights area above the Parkway - large homes with incredible views over downtown to Vancouver.
  • Lower: A newer, more affordable subdivision above the Jingle Pot Pub, with views looking north to Central Nanaimo
  • Beside Buttertubs Marsh: Some larger, well-kept 1970s-80s homes around Bird Sanctuary Drive
  • Hawthorne, the c.2010 subdivision off 2nd Street and Wakesiah, with grand floorplans and finishes, as well as a European/loft-style cluster of townhomes. (See Hawthorne listings)
  • Fairview: An old neighbourhood between Wakesiah Ave and Pine Street - solid old homes, similar to Harewood
  • The northwest parts of Harewood - the Board's official boundary between The University District and South Nanaimo is Harewood Road.

Nearby Schools

  • Fairview Elementary ; 205 Howard Ave.
  • Georgia Avenue Elementary ; 625 Georgia Ave.
  • Nanaimo District Secondary School (NDSS) ; 355 Wakesiah Ave.
  • John Barsby Secondary ; 550 7th St.
