ciudad nf (conjunto de edificios)town n
Se ha votado un proyecto para adquirir un terreno contiguo a la ciudad universitaria. Tengo clase de natación a las nueve en la ciudad deportiva.
They've approved a project to buy the land next to the university town.

I don't think that "ciudad universitaria" is "university town" in this case.
+ what would be a translation for "ciudad deportiva"?

ciudad universitaria loc nom f (campus)university campus n
Los jóvenes visitaron la ciudad universitaria con la escuela.
Young people visited the university campus with the school.

But it seems that it can mean both maybe?
ciudad universitaria

    I agree with this report. I think "campus" is the best translation for "ciudad universitaria". For "ciudad deportiva", perhaps "sports complex" would work for an AE audience. Maybe "sporting complex" or "athletic complex" for a BE audience?
