There are two campuses northeast of downtown, Gonzaga University, and the Riverpoint Campus, which contains branches of Washington State and Eastern Washington Universities, as well as an extension of the University of Washington medical school.

Logan is comprised of lush canopies of overarching trees, wide streets, three major retirement centers, and four parks. The roads have very little traffic during the evening time allowing for great bike riding opportunities during the summer and fall months. Neighbors are typically welcoming and pleasant to interact with and you may even get an invite out to a summer bonfire, as these are common amongst college students and families alike. The culture of this neighborhood is alive and healthy with a young, up-and-coming population of young professionals.
