Metro Manila, all things considered, is still a wonder on its own. Although its streets are congested and its traffic is unbearable, at the end of the day, the city is still what true-blue Manila residents would call home. After all, the metro offers everything from high-end malls, gastronomical restaurants, to, of course, the top universities in the entire country.

When universities come to mind, most think of a familiar sub-district of Manila known as the University Belt or U-Belt. This is where you can find a collection of universities like the University of Santo Tomas, National University, and San Beda College in one area. But universities aren’t the only establishments here. Aside from cafes and restaurants for students, a number of condominiums have also sprung up thanks to the high demand of shelter, thus making condo searching a million times easier. Check out the five best condos near U-belt below!
