Shop & Dine at University Place Near Our Orem Apartments

Just eight minutes from our Orem, Utah apartments is a shopping and dining destination unlike any other in Utah County.

We are talking about University Place, and for over forty years, it has been Orem's landmark shopping center.

Highlights include:


As young girls, Vivien and Fernanda Bohme immigrated to the United States from Brazil. Their eye for fashion led them to open Bohme, and they enjoy helping women enjoy their personal style. The clothing is designed with quality and trends in mind. The staff tries on each piece to ensure a perfect fit, and there's something for everyone. Items include dresses, cardigans, and distressed jeans. 

Every year, Bohme raises money for nonprofit organizations. Since opening, it has partnered with the Ronald McDonald House and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, among others.

Tradehome Shoes 

Tradehome Shoes has been helping people walk comfortably since 1921. The staff will measure your foot to help you find the perfect fit. The company began from humble beginnings, and it was built on offering quality footwear and personal service. Brands include Skechers, Adidas, and On Running. 

Black Bear Diner

Nestled on the edge of the mall, the Black Bear Diner is popular among hungry diners. Wood carved bears greet visitors, and the rustic theme continues into the dining room. In the kitchen, the chefs prepare a large menu using the finest, freshest ingredients. Depending on the time, meals may include Denver omelets, Bigfoot chicken fried steak, and smoked beef brisket. 

The diner established the Bear Brew Back program in 2018. It supports the Nicaraguan families who grow the restaurant's single-origin coffee through infrastructure, medical care, and educational-related activities.
