University District

College Students/Faculty/Families

The University District neighborhood surrounds Sonoma State University and as a result has the energy of the students and all the school has to offer as a bonus for all who choose to live here. Sporting events, theater and cultural events are year round just a walk away on campus. You’re also living next to Crane Creek Park and North Sonoma Mountain Regional Park so you can hardly do better for an outdoor lifestyle. While there are plenty of students who live in apartment rentals, the neighborhood is booming with higher-end, new development single family homes for those looking for beautiful homes and the more active culture the school provides.

Mountain Shadows


Mountain Shadows is a family-centric neighborhood known for its mix of mid-priced and high-end homes. The name of the neighborhood comes from the beautiful light and shade that comes off its position in the foothills of the Sonoma Mountains. Families enjoy the newer homes and outdoor recreational opportunities including a half-dozen parks and community rec areas. The neighborhood, with its mix of housing options, is particularly popular for starter homes for young families who appreciate the lower prices (by California standards).
