Explore Ashland's University District


Looking for information on the 2023 Spring Scavenger Hunt? Students, pick up game cards at the front desk of the Stevenson Union and in the Student Recreation Center! Scavenger Hunt runs April 10-16!

Ashland is home to Southern Oregon University, a student-success focused university, serving roughly 5,000 students in the southern Oregon area and celebrating 150 years in 2022. The University has a welcoming atmosphere on campus and throughout the geographic area where it is planted. Cool businesses and community organizations are threaded throughout this lively part of Ashland. We invite you to check out the businesses, explore the campus and immerse yourself in all that the University District has to offer.

As a newly formed committee of Southern Oregon University, the Ashland Chamber of Commerce, and several business leaders, check back for more information and programs during fall 2022.

Boundary of the University District:

Along Siskiyou Blvd from Mountain Avenue to Normal Avenue and Ashland Street (66) from Siskiyou Blvd to Normal Avenue.   This includes over 60 businesses and the SOU campus. 

The University District Mission:

The University District  is a vibrant, fun, and engaging community in the middle of Ashland that serves the needs of those who live and work here and entices visitors to this part of town. By strengthening bonds between the campus and its neighbors, we – businesses, students, SOU employees, residents – create a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere that supports the success of all of us in the “University District.”
