This place is ridiculous. The first time I drove by this place at night when it was all lit up, I thought it was a casino. Someone at work suggested that I should go running here when I live across the street from Ravenna Park. The only place I really go here is the grocery store, and Radio Shack is useful on occasion. It was probably a much cooler place before it got revamped in the 90’s, or better yet, when it was a marsh.over 5 years ago

This mall was once referred to as a “lifestyle center” in a book of short stories by a Seattle author. The label is apt.
This outdoor mall has in recent years gone upscale. Bring buckets of cash and a mania for brand names and you’ll feel right at home.over 6 years ago
I live close to University Village and go there when I need something from Safeway or Bartell’s. As far as the shopping goes, though, I think it’s pretty crappy. The stores that aren’t things like Office Depot are expensive places like Anthropologie. Don’t get me wrong, I like Williams Sonoma and those kinds of stores, but they don’t really seem appropriate for a shopping center that draws a large student population. Some of the restaurants are all right, including Delfino’s, which has Chicago style pizza.over 7 years ago
Just a pedestarian open-air mall/shopping center. Nothing to get all that excited about really. I find the place a bit incongruous with the nearby area. But see what they have to say for themselves:
“University Village is the only open-air lifestyle shopping center in the pacific northwest and offers a unique formula of national stores and local retailers. University Village is a regional destination for home furnishings, popular fashions, unique gift items, and a distinctive selection of restaurants and eateries.”over 7 years ago
