U District Community Council

With a half-century legacy, the U District Community Council brings together and represents the diverse people of our neighborhood to build a walkable, livable, and inclusive community with a unique sense of place.

For over 50 years, the U District Community Council has represented the University District as the go-to place for neighbors looking to get involved in our community.

As the U District grows at a rapid pace in the next few years, expecting to add over 7,000 new residents, we are prepared to take on a larger role engaging residents in our neighborhood.

We welcome U District neighbors and friends, and encourage you to get involved and learn more about our great neighborhood.

Our meetings are now held on the second Wednesday of each month at 7pm at Bulldog News, 4208 University Way NE, Seattle. All meetings are open to the public.

Come meet your neighbors!
