Our Neighborhood

Kansas City, Missouri

While Avila University’s 50-acre campus is tucked into a quiet suburban neighborhood, you’ll have easy highway access to all things Kansas City via I-435. Like most areas of Kansas City, having access to a car is helpful. However, Avila is on a major bus route (Wornall 57) which serves the campus and connects with a large retail district that includes Wal-Mart and Target stores to the southwest.

South Kansas City

The Kansas City metropolitan area sprawls across 14 counties and two states. Avila University is on the south end of the area, less than a mile from the Kansas-Missouri state line.

From campus, you’re within a 15-minute drive to The Country Club Plaza, The Truman Sports Complex, numerous biking and hiking trails, Longview Lake, and everything Kansas City.

Red Bridge Neighborhood

Within walking distance of campus is the Red Bridge Shopping Center with a variety of dining and shopping options, including a grocery store, hardware store, and public library.
