University City (UC) is a community in San Diego, located in the northwestern portion of the city. The campus of the UCSD, from which the area derives its name, is to the west of the center of the neighborhood. Many of the professors teaching at UCSD live in the UC neighborhood. The topography of University City includes mesas and canyons such as Rose Canyon, San Clemente Canyon, and finger canyons that provide much of the open space. The canyons provide wildlife habitats with about 100 bird species migrating through the area plus natural views and opportunities for hiking, biking, and birding. There is also a large regional shopping mall, University Towne Center, referred to as UTC. The northern part of University City also contains two major hospitals, Scripps Memorial and UCSD's Jacobs Medical Center, with surrounding medical office buildings. Some parks and recreation centers that are also available include Standley Recreation Center and Park, La Jolla Colony Park, Rose Canyon Open Space Park, and Doyle Recreation Center and Park which includes an off-leash dog park with two fenced areas to keep large and small dogs separated.
