Love the apartment itself. The staff is incredibly helpful. It's super convenient to the Law School. The only negative thing is that the fire alarm goes off frequently in the whole building.

3601

The building is fantastic, it is a new building with a gym, pool, and many amenities. The management company leaves a lot to be desired. They sometimes don't respond to emails, take a long time to fix community things like the elevators when they go down, and have frequent employee turnover.

Management Troubles

Loved the apartment and being close to huntsman and away from the bubble. The amenities and units are amazing - salt water pool, club house with billiards, tvs, etc, floor to ceiling windows, in unit laundry etc.

Only two downsides are the neighbors and management. While there are a ton of grad students - no undergrads allowed - and young professionals, there are also many children and families. That means your date night pool hang outs turn into toddler screaming matches. Most residents just avoid common areas at peak kid times.

Management is very amateur and not responsive to resident needs. Everything is a battle. I'm just hoping another management company comes along and brings us into the 21st century of tenant relations.

Law student review

The property is beautiful and most of the staff is wonderful and responsive to maintenance requests. Management is much less responsive and it is difficult to get a reply from them regarding concerns about payment

3601 Market Review

The overall experience has been great at 3601 Market. Everything is new and clean. Normally management is responsive though there have been times when they drop the ball - though truly not many issues have come up. Great for students because theres a gym on site and also free printing. There is extra small study rooms and a pool to read by when its warm.

University City Reviews

85 reviews
My wife & I lived in Center City for a few years before moving across the river here. University City is a ton of fun! Definitely not as many restaurants and bars at each corner, but the ~10 minutes shaved off my commute to HUP / the VA each day makes it well worth it for anyone who works at any of the healthcare sites or at UPenn / Wharton.
Has a down-to-earth vibe with a lot of ethnic diversity (and lots of amazing and cheap food!). Is also convenient to UPenn if you attend school there. Clark Park is also super lovely (with a great farmer's markets throughout most of the year), and there are a ton of adorable dogs around.
There's definitely enough restaurants, bars, and shopping to get you through the week. On the weekends I think it's a lot more fun to head to the Rittenhouse/Center City area, but there's certainly nothing wrong with UCity.
I enjoy living in University City. It is perfect if you want to live in a low key area very close to school. Most people in the area are affiliated with Penn, so the community is generally pretty young and active. You are in walking distance from everything you might need. You do not need a car to get around. Even if you plan on spending a good deal of time in Center City, you can get there easily by rail or by Uber. I wouldn't have chosen to live anywhere else during 1L.
It is really close to campus, so the campus security is always around making the area very safe. The noise level never gets too bad, during class hours there are people everywhere. However after evening classes everything dies down as people are either going home or are inside studying. The closest grocery stores are Fresh Grocers (on 40th street and Walnut) and Trader Joe's (on 21st and Market). Because this is an area that is mostly college campus there are not a lot of social places near by, you typically have to head into center city for most of the good places to socialize.
University City can be fairly noisy due to the students and many nearby hospitals and it lacks the nicer restaurants you find elsewhere in Philadelphia. Grocery shopping is fairly convenient but if you need to buy furnishings for your apartment, you may need to make a special trip elsewhere in the city. The bookstore is convenient but is a bit overpriced and has al limited selection.
Great neighborhood. The area is close to Walnut Street which is full of restaurants, bars, and anything you need really. There are a lot of students in the area and I have always felt safe here.
Nice area, but there have been a fair number of robberies in the neighborhood at night. Though they never occurred in Sansom, I would not walk alone especially as a female at night West of Sansom. As long as you are careful where you are walking and going towards campus or center city you are ok.
