Spokane’s University District is where business and education grow together and where people are coming to live, learn, work, and play.  The University District acts as an urban laboratory creating new knowledge and community-engaged research, resulting in increased regional prosperity and improved quality of life for all. With five major universities, two medical school programs, top-notch community colleges, a nationally-recognized smart city testbed, and a burgeoning life sciences ecosystem, this is an idea-generating and innovation-focused community to its core.

Despite the pandemic, the University District continues to promote area revitalization, economic development, connectivity, and smart urban growth. If you are experiencing challenges during this time, we encourage you to see these resources:
