Universal City

Universal City is renowned as “The Gateway to Randolph AFB.” The City has experienced impressive and exciting progress over the years. With a population of just under 20,000, the vibrant city is home to a wide variety of retail and commercial establishments. Recently, the City welcomed one if its newest residents, the Northeast Lakeview College. The sprawling 238-acre campus provides for the educational and training needs of the people in northeast Bexar County and surrounding areas as well as specialized information technology training for local business entities.

Universal City is consistently recognized for its commitment to excellence and its forward-thinking approach to development and municipal operations. The City was voted as the Best City Hall in the nine-city Metrocom area. Additionally, a plethora of businesses, including the city-owned and operated Olympia Hills Golf Course, were also distinguished as being preeminent in their respective fields or industries.

Residents of Universal City enjoy the outdoors. Joggers, people walking their pets and stroller brigades are a typical sight on City sidewalks. Boasting 230 acres of family friendly parks, Universal City residents enjoy spectator sports and great outdoor recreation every day. The dog park offers a tail-wagging good time for dogs that enjoy off-leash time with their masters. Nearby San Antonio provides an abundance of other recreational and cultural activities. A myriad of sports-related and family events take place in Universal City year round: parades, movies in the park, snow carnivals, nature walks, military appreciation events and ball games to name just a few.

Good taste prevails in Universal City. The City consistently earns superior water ratings and the Texas Water Utilities Association recently honored the City with the coveted “Best Tasting Ground Water” award, defeating 17 other Texas communities. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) awarded the City with a Compliance Recognition Award for outstanding water quality.

Energy conservation projects for residential and commercial buildings abound throughout the City. Additionally, all City facilities have been retrofitted with energy-efficient lighting, windows, and heating and air conditioning systems. Universal City is green with energy efficiency.
