Spencer View Apartments

Built in the late 1990s, this complex with views of the surrounding hills is an exceptional apartment community. Spencer View is located less than a mile from the UO campus, adjacent to two schools and a large park. It is also the home of the nationally recognized, private, nonprofit Spencer View Co-op Family Center, which serves children from eight weeks to ten years of age.

These bright and airy apartments are separated into eight neighborhoods. Each has its own laundry facility, community garden, and children's playground. In addition to the neighborhood playgrounds, the entire complex shares a large playground and park adjacent to the expanisive community center, as well as several shared community gardens. Each of the 272 apartments are spacious and have attached storage spaces. There are fourteen completely accessible units and all first floor apartments can be ADA adapted. Apartments are cable-ready and wired for Ethernet (Internet that does not tie up the phone line). They also feature kitchens with a window facing the neighborhood courtyard, as well as a living room that extends out to a private balcony or patio. These are non-smoking apartments and do not allow pets; however, aquarium fish are the exception.
