South University Neighborhood 

Touching the south end of the University of Oregon campus, the South University Neighborhood (SUN) district is a pleasant mix of historic residential homes and small businesses. Popular with college faculty, students and families, this area has a friendly, relaxed vibe. 

The sprawling but walkable and bike-able community encompasses Hayward Field and extends south toward the historic Masonic Cemetery. Highlights include several parks, the Maude Kerns Art Center, the Museum of Natural and Cultural History and a small collection of excellent food and drink establishments.

Top Attractions

The neighborhood hums when Matthew Knight Arena hosts basketball games and concerts or when Hayward Field has a track & field event. 

Please note that parking rules are strictly enforced along residential streets during events. Most high-traffic events provide shuttles from Autzen Stadium, bike valet or other easy transportation options to lessen congestion.
