University Park, a predominantly residential community of more than 25,000 residents, is located approximately five miles north of downtown Dallas, Texas. The City is the home of Southern Methodist University and the George W. Bush Presidential Center.  It is also known for its attractive homes, beautiful parks, and numerous churches. The location of University Park in north-central Dallas provides easy access to a broad range of cultural, recreational, shopping, and business activities.
A diverse range of more than 7,000 homes supports a unique population base. One of the most highly-educated cities in the nation, 87 percent of residents over 25 have college or advanced degrees.
The City is served by the Highland Park Independent School District (HPISD). In state testing, HPISD students consistently rank among the highest in the state, with 97% of the graduating class typically continuing on to college.
The City prides itself on providing prompt and personal attention to requests for services. A primary goal of the City is to provide and maintain a secure residential atmosphere and, through a hometown policing approach, the City maintains crime rates among the lowest in the metropolitan area.
