Better Little Rock Neighborhoods

The University District Partnership will redevelop the areas around the UA Little Rock campus, creating a dynamic urban place and improving the quality of life for all who live, learn, work and play in the area.

Located in the heart of Little Rock and anchored by the UA Little Rock campus, the University District community includes the homes, workplaces, and schools for thousands of families, workers, business owners, teachers, and students.

The University District is composed of several attractive traditional urban neighborhoods with significant housing for everyone from first-time homeowners to empty-nesters. It is also home to the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, which is critical to the economic growth and job development in the area.

The university’s presence in the district serves as an anchor, a stabilizing resource for improving the area and rebuilding a healthy, vibrant urban community. By upgrading existing facilities where feasible and stimulating new development, the UDP envisions the area becoming, over time, a desirable destination and key to the economic vitality of Little Rock.
