expensive but very happy/great amenities

I have really enjoyed living here so far. Everyone is so nice and helpful. The team has helped me fix various things in my apartment that are not their obligation (e.g., refilling holes with spackle/painting over when I moved things on my walls, cleaning out vents, clearing out the drains, etc.). Apartments have central air, washer/dryers in unit, dishwashers and microwaves. The roof is gorgeous. I have not used the gym or common areas because of COVID but they look amazing. We also get free workout classes when it's not COVID, and I am very much looking forward to that. My apartment feels clean. I know my packages are safe. I know the building is secure. I live a 7 minute walk away from the Penn law school campus.

Great location and management

The apartment complex is within a short walking distance of UPenn's campus . Management is very friendly, helpful, and responsive. The amenities are also very modern.

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.

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.

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.

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.

University City Reviews

107 reviews
Gentrifying area of West Philly, given Penn's presence and expansion into the neighborhood. Easily walkable. Within several blocks of Clark Park, where there are lots of community events and family-friendly activities in addition to walking paths and dog park. Lots of cute shops and restaurants along Baltimore Ave plus great hole-in-the-wall spots if you want to explore a bit more.
The best thing about the neighborhood is that it is extremely close to the law school. There are some stores and restaurants, but it isn't vibrant. There are basically no liquor stores in university city. Proximity to school was most important to me, so I think it is a great place to live.
Perfect for the 1L experience-- I love being close to law school and surrounded by other students. Living so close to all of Penn's resources, with great food/drink options around, is awesome. Plus it is very easy to get into Center City on SEPTA.
University City is a great college town. It provides everything you could want plus higher-end more modern options when it comes to restaurants and bars. Very walkable and safe
Not much to do, have to go to center city for most stuff but that’s fine for me as a med student cause most stuff is at the school.
Very close to the law school which is great but other areas of the city have better restaurants/coffee shops
Close to work and Penn's campus but not as close to center city/restaurants.
I'm glad I live in University City because I have such a short walk to school and can go home for lunch each day. I don't have time to do many fun activities in Center City anyway, so I don't regret not living there. Having said that, Center City definitely has more of an "adult" feel. Where I live in University City doesn't really feel like a neighborhood or community.
