Urban geography is the study of areas which have a high concentration of buildings and infrastructure. Predominantly towns and cities, these are areas with a high population density and with the majority of economic activities in the secondary sector and tertiary sectors.

It is a sub-discipline of human geography. It often overlaps with other fields of study such as anthropology, urban planning and urban sociology. Urban geographers are primarily concerned with the ways in cities and towns are constructed, governed and experienced.
