Welcome to Our Neighborhood!

The West University Neighborhood Association (WUNA) is a group of friendly neighbors who have formed an association through which we can address mutual concerns and enjoy neighborly social activities.

West University Neighborhood is at the center of education, arts, culture and entertainment in downtown Tucson AZ. We are neighbors with the University of Arizona, Pima Community College, Tucson High School and our fellow historic neighborhoods, Dunbar Spring, Feldman’s, Iron Horse and Pie Allen. The area’s boundaries are Stone Avenue on the west, Speedway on the north, Park Avenue on the east, and Sixth Street on the south.

The neighborhood is home to many workshops, studios and galleries of local artists and artisans. The University of Arizona brings several museums and art galleries to the neighborhood, including the University of Arizona Museum of Art, the John P. Schaefer Center for Creative Photography and the Arizona State Museum. The Postal History Foundation is also within the West University Neighborhood. The 4th Avenue and Main Gate Square shopping districts offer a variety of shops and restaurants, as well as night clubs, venues for Tucson’s vibrant local music scene as well as touring musicians. UA Presents brings international performing arts to Centennial Hall just through the UA main gate.

Jan 21: Annual WUNA Meeting and Neighborhood Gathering

The Annual WUNA meeting and neighborhood gathering potluck is January 21, 2018, 1pm, at Catalina Park. You do not need to be a property owner – everyone is welcome!

This will be a potluck with the association providing the plates, cups, and beverages.

Our annual meetings provide the opportunity for new and old residents to meet and together to decide important matters for the organization to concentrate on next year. We will elect officers and area representatives. All the officer positions are open, and it is important to have new energy and new ideas, so please volunteer to take a part in helping to maintain the special character of our historic neighborhood.

We ask dues of $10 a household to help maintain the website, post office box, and other incidental expenses.

Call for Good Contractor References: Preferred Provider List Update!

It has been a couple of years since we updated the Preferred Provider List, which is a very useful benefit of WUNA membership.

Most of us have historic or at least older homes and fixing them requires a knowledge of older systems and finishes. Some trades people enjoy the challenge, others hate dealing with our complex issues – and others pretend they know how and make things worse.

That is why it is important that we share with each other the names of people who have worked for us and done a great job!

So if you have had a good experience with someone who has worked on your historic home recently, please email Carolyn the name and contact information. This will only take you a minute but can save your neighbors much gnashing of teeth and pulling of hair. Consider it your first good deed for 2017!
