Great value for money

We have a renovated unit on the 17th floor with West facing windows overlooking Rittenhouse Park. There were leakage issues when we moved in but those have now been fixed. Tons of space for a 2BD if you are willing to share a bathroom.

Great value apartment for MBAs

My roommate and I have really enjoyed our experience. Coming from apartments in NYC where we paid much more for much less, we've been really happy with the amount of space we have and the amenities we have access to for the rent we're paying. The location also can't be beat - we've loved living on the park (and getting park views in our apartment) and we're really in the center of all Wharton social activities, and the walk across Walnut to campus is super convenient.

Great building with amenities

Pros:

- Great location right at the park

- Good amenities - gym, lounge, sun roof, doorman and maintenance staff

- Responsive management

- Reasonable all-inclusive rent with flexible lease durations (< 12 months possible)

Cons:

- Rooms below the 15th floor on the side of the alley have too much noise from the dumpster trucks every morning - can be a challenge if you are a light sleeper

- Some rooms may have lesser sunlight

- Some rooms have thin walls, but it also depends on how picky your neighbours are - wasn't a problem for me

- Moving elevators are a bit tiny

Great except temp control

Great apartment, responsive management. Biggest issue is the building dictates when the heat goes on so the apartment gets VERY WARM as soon as that happens. Maintenance is unable to turn on individual AC units when this happens.

best bang for buck on the square

not the oldest, not the newest, everything works, maintenance is super responsive. gym isn't the best, but still better than the other rittenhouse internal gyms. great southern exposure but morning trash trucks are LOUD and some people will not be able to deal with that.

Rittenhouse Square Reviews

402 reviews
I like living in Center City a lot. I tried living in University City my first year of law school, but I found it was more stressful being closer to campus. I like the walk everyday and it's great being downtown for bar review and other social events. Most upper level students also live downtown, so it is easier to connect with your peers. Also a target and CVS very close by, so it is very convenient if you need to pick up groceries, or want to take a break and head out shopping etc. If you like a social atmosphere and one where you can distance yourself a bit from the college experience and integrate with young professionals in Philadelphia, Center City is a great place to be.
Most people who live here have well paying jobs or are retired. We see a ton of dogs every day. The streets are maintained well (holla at that snow n ice removal) and we are right in the middle of everything - restaurants, stores, cafes, clothing, you name it.
Mostly everything you'll need:

-Great restaurants (mostly a bit pricier)
-Target usually is out of stock of needed groceries. Rittenhouse Market is pricey. TJ's is too far. PrimeNow works well though! -Transit to campus is marginally more difficult
Lots of traffic noise and little street parking, BUT so close to the park, amazing bars/restaurants/stores/coffee shops. Rittenhouse farmers' market, Schuylkill running trail, PATCO is right there . . . love it.
The neighborhood is safe, right in center city. The building is located on Walnut street though which means that there is a decent amount of noise in the apartments that are facing that street.
Right in the middle of Rittenhouse square. Very close to most other popular Wharton buildings and easy commute to school, whether you are walking, using the SEPTA, or catching a ride.
Tons of restaurants, bars, shopping, and exercise classes within walking distance. Many other medical students live in this area as well so it's a great area to be based.
Very nice. A bit expensive—few full grocery stores. Walkable, restaurants, green park, and shopping. Busy on weekends and Friday, Saturday, & Sunday PM.
