About Us

Step into the University District!

Spokane’s University District is where business and education grow together and the place to live, learn, work, and play in the Intermountain Northwest. 

This is an urban laboratory creating new knowledge and applied, community-engaged research, resulting in increased regional prosperity and improved quality of life. 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.
