Committed to promoting owner-occupancy in the University Neighborhood since 1990.

Enjoy this video highlighting some of the best things about our neighborhood:



UNPA offers grants up to $5,000 & 1% interest loans.

People of all ages and backgrounds call the University Neighborhood home. The convenience and excitement of urban living, combined with old-fashioned charm and character, make this neighborhood one of Syracuse’s best-kept secrets.

The University Neighborhood Preservation Association is committed to promoting owner-occupancy by primarily administering a homebuyers assistance program that helps families and individuals purchase homes in the UNPA Target Area.

University/Westcott Housing & Neighborhood Plan

UNPA contracted with the Center for Community Design & Research (CCDR) at SUNY-ESF to facilitate development of the University/Westcott Housing & Neighborhood Plan. The plan was developed to supplement to the City of Syracuse Housing Plan. The outcomes were created through the process of developing a vision statement, setting goals, and creating an action plan to achieve those goals with numerous community meetings & focus groups.
