Just five miles from the shores of Escambia Bay, University Pines retirement community offers the best of Sunshine State senior living in Pensacola, FL. Located adjacent to a school, church and several medical centers, our independent living community is a short drive from the Panhandle’s top sites. Plane spotters will love living just 17 miles from the Naval Aviation Museum, home to more than 150 World War II and Vietnam “warbirds.” While culture aficionados will enjoy the dynamic exhibits of the Pensacola Museum of Art, located just 10 miles away in the city's vibrant downtown.

University Pines is also situated within a half-hour of the area’s best beaches, including Avalon Beach, a refuge for sea turtles, herons and bald eagles, and the sugary sands of the world-famous Pensacola Beach.

University Pines is an award-winning, independent senior living community. Awards include the 2020 Great Place to Work certification, the 2019 Great Place to Work certification, and the 2018 Great Place to Work certification.
