Originally part of Arapahoe County, the land that is now University Hills was annexed to Denver in 1944 and 1946 to accommodate the influx of residents during the end of World War II. Led by developers Ted Hutchinson and Lou Carey, University Hills adopted the tag line “beautiful, spacious homes at a price you can afford", with the same sentiment ringing true today.
A quiet residential neighborhood, University Hills primarily offers well-cared-for, single family ranch homes with manicured lawns on wide streets, with most homes having been built post World War II in the 1950s and 1960s. A recent rise in construction has added larger modern homes to the neighborhood, but it still retains its classic suburban appeal. While the neighborhood itself is quiet, University Hills is surrounded by major thoroughfares and retail destinations, in addition to being close to the University of Denver.
Charming and welcoming, University Hills offers residents a quiet suburban lifestyle with easy access to urban amenities. One of Denver’s most convenient neighborhoods in terms of location, University Hills sits half way between the Denver Tech Center and downtown. Residents can enjoy easy access to two RTD stations, South Colorado Boulevard, and Interstate 25. Eisenhower Park and the High Line Canal trail allow residents to embrace the laid-back outdoor lifestyle that makes Colorado living so desirable.
