Walnut Hill Apartments
Spacious 1 bed 1 bath apartment. Quiet neighborhood and walls are thick. The building is a renovated hotel, and the maintenance is good. They clean the hallways every week. Heater turns on automatically by the building, and sometimes it's too hot, but all utilities except electricity are covered which is nice. Residents are a mix of grad and undergrad students, and families.
Reasonable rent, pest and temperature issues
The building has mice, gets too hot in the summer and the winter. Even totally shutting down the radiators is not always enough. I often need to turn the AC on cold when it is like 30 outside.
Not Much to Complain
Other than some bathroom issues during November I'm not super picky.
Decent place in good location and price
I've been here for a year and a half and overall like the place. The management company is fairly responsive. We did have a rodent problem for a month, but it seems to have been resolved. The rent is cheap and the location is very good (near trolleys and MFL and buses). It's not a place to write home about, but it gets the job done. It is on a loud street #philly #cityliving
Surrey Hall Review
A nice cozy space you can call home
Decent for the price
You get what you pay for. Close to campus. Doesn't have the latest amenities, but it is a cheaper option. Management is easy to deal with.
Convenient, Good price, but not the nicer place
Is an overall good complex of apartments, because it is close to school and the shuttle stops just in front of it, however is not the best place for social life. It is also the best price you can get. The apartment those the job but has nothing special, you can tell it is a little old. So if your looking for a convenient and good price place and don't care for it to be a nice modern place where people would go for social gatherings, it works.
2 seconds from Kroger and a shuttle to class but
Management can be slow to respond and tend to do the bare minimum when it comes to maintenance. I had water damage in my apartment due to issues with the unit above me and it took *three* tries to get them to check it out.
Convenient but Not Great
The surrounding area is pretty busy roads so not that nice of a neighborhood for running/walking, but conveniently close to campus/the Emory shuttle comes to the apartment directly; the building and interiors are decent but not that well-lit; the place comes furnished, with combined internet, etc. in the bill, plus in-unit washer/dryer, all of which is helpful. Overall convenient for first-year living, not great for longer-term stays.
Campus Crossings at Briarcliff Review
Good enough for a 1st year.
Good place, good price
It's a nice simple apartment. Elevator. Two door entrance with packages out in the lobby.
Loud noise from Chestnut street, even at night. That's really the only downside. The apartment's floors are creaky, but that's not usually an issue.
Gas stoves. Utilities are super cheap here given that gas is included.
Two blocks from MFL line. 21 bus into center city is right outside the door. Short walk to Wharton campus.
Apartment Complex in West Philadelphia
Webster Manor is located in between 43rd street and 42nd, a few blocks away from campus. The best part about the apartment is the location. The apartment is a half a block away from the beautiful Clark Park, a hub of the vibrant community living in the Spruce Hill neighborhood. The apartment itself is spacious and cheap, although the building is very old. There are cockroaches and mice.
2 blocks from Septa, right next to a major bus line (21), two blocks from Acme grocery store, 8 blocks from Aldi grocery, prob the same or less for Supremo grocery. Good value. My only complaint is the noise from Chestnut.
Mediocre living experience at Campus Crossings
The best thing about campus crossings is its not very expensive compared to the other locations where most MBA students live. The living space in my 2 bedroom apartment is somewhat spacious and includes a private bathroom and washer/dryer. Internet, water, and heat are all included in the rent. There is a Kroger next door and its only a short drive to campus and Old Fourth Ward/Inman Park area. There is a swimming pool which I have yet to use and a very, very small gym that's basically 3 treadmills and rack of free weights. The apartment complex is not very clean and the smell of garbage can sometimes permeate throughout the halls. The overhead lights are also atrocious, so definitely buy lots of lamps if you plan on moving in.
Reasonable, Spacious, Convenient
The apartment is large, with enough space in the bedroom for a king size bed and other furniture and plenty of space in the living room for a couch and a dining table and a chair. The kitchen works just fine, everything is functional and nothing is fancy. Nothing about the apartment is fancy at all, but it is spacious and convenient to Penn campus. Maintenance issues are dealt with quickly. Only major complaint is lack of heat control.
