Overall excellent place to live

Doorman to accept packages/groceries/deliveries. Management is very responsive to any concerns or problems with the apartment(same day responses). Located in the middle of all 3 hospitals - you can walk to all 3 hospitals and clinic in less 15 minutes. Pet friendly with dog walkers that live in the building. Parking available. Not very close to Rittenhouse.

Like it a lot

I like the building a lot, but I have not been crazy about the management or my fellow residents. They are not always the most considerate to their neighbors.

Awesome building

The building is only a couple years old and the apartments are very nice. There's a common floor with a gym, study spaces, and theater room. If you live on one of the higher floors, there are great views. All the apartments have floor to ceiling windows, too, so tons of natural light. It's about a 7 minute walk to school. A shared Uber to Rittenhouse/Center City area is usually about $3.75.

Close to school

The primary reason I rented here was because of the quick walk to school, and my unit was less expensive then the availability at Domus. The building is great. It's very secure with a front desk attendant at all times, and requires a FOB to enter and to take the elevator.

There is tons of study space, I mostly study on the second floor which has tables, chairs, rooms, and a coffee machine.

The units are clean and new, and everything works great. I have no complaints about living here. Maintenance is great, and the staff is extremely friendly.

My partner and I love living here. It is a little pricier than we wanted, but we are getting our money's worth.

Don't let the price deter you

The building is definitely expensive for the city but the proximity to school has been wonderful. Also, the new construction means that we rarely if ever have issues with the apartment. The management is remarkably responsive and addresses any inquiries and requests right away. They also host monthly events with delicious food.

I love the gym. Even though they don't host classes, having the fitness center just downstairs means that I didn't have to join another gym and don't need to leave the building to work out.

University City apartment

I love 3737 Chestnut. I have a 1 BR 1 den very spacious and very bright apartment. It is very convenient to have a washer/dryer and dishwasher in the unit. Whenever I have visitors they all comment on how great the granite counter tops and floor to ceiling windows are. To top it off I LOVE their brand new gym and the most amazing roof top. Overall I am very pleased with my choice on making 3737 chestnut my home.

Worth the price

A hefty price tag, but worth it for the convenience, the ample study space, the great rooftop and lounge areas with massive TVs (almost always available), and the comfortable apartments. The fact it's brand new is also a great feature.

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.
