I love it here
I moved into The Chancellor shortly before my school year started after doing a lot of research online. I absolutely love my apartment. It's a tad smaller than some of my other classmates' apartments but I feel that I have more than enough room for myself. The apartment is clean and everything works pretty well. Maintenance has been prompt whenever I needed something. The laundry, mail, and trash facilities are easy to use. The location is impossible to beat, especially if you use the PATCO or like to enjoy the Washington Square West/Center City area. I plan to live here all throughout my schooling.
Huge windows pretty units, very secure! The only thing is u have to get your own a/c and heater to be comfy
I enjoy living here
Chancellor is a great option for someone looking to live affordably in a great location in Center City. It is extremely close to TJUH, among other popular tourist locations such as Reading Terminal, City Hall, Convention Center, etc. The apartment itself is on the older side; it does not have central air, uses radiator heat, and there are no dishwashers or laundry in unit. However, these are smaller compromises for the sake of affordable rent. Security is one of the strengths--always a front desk person who buzzes visitors in, watches cameras, holds packages for you, etc. Shared living spaces like laundry room and entrance are nice and clean.
it's old, lots of issues that need fixing, besides that its fine

Chancellor Apartments Review
Amazing place to live at an amazing price
This building is the hidden gem of center city. I've lived in two other apartments, and all pale in comparison to my apartment at the Chancellor. I have a large, all wood-floored, high-floor apartment with amazing views of the city. The apartment came extremely clean, the maintenance staff is responsive, and the doormen and women are so kind. While the Chancellor is an older building, it has a lot of character, and it is meticulously taken care of. Water included, radiator heat included which is extremely sufficient. Only downside is no central air, but management will install your window units for free. Electric bills have ranged from 15-45 dollars per month, which is so affordable! Highly recommend.
The Chancellor Review
Everything is perfect except the price
Management is kind and prompt to follow-up on issues, security guards are professional and kind, neighbors are friendly and respectful, the whole place is spotless, elevators work 80% of the time (which is alright with me), laundry in the basement (works 80% of the time which is not okay with me because it takes my money). Downfalls: my studio apt does not include a freezer (just a mini fridge, so I brought my own), it’s located in a noisy area (I turn on my fan but sometimes it’s still super loud- but that’s just center city living). The price is a big downfall although it’s very cheap for a studio on 13th. This was found as emergency housing- I know I can find cheaper studios for $700-$750 still north of Washington. Ideally, that’s where I’d be. But everything else is so nice about the apartment that if you can afford it, I highly recommend Chancellor.
Really nice place, very close to uarts, unit is really nice, perfect size for 2 people
Great location, large apartments!
This is a very unique building- the apartments have a lot of charm (buildt in bookcases, fireplaces, arches) and tall ceilings!! It is a condo so most people in the building own, but some people like our landlord decide to rent. The laundry room is in the basement and works fine, though it isn't always super clean. Maintenance staff is very limited and it takes a long time for requests to be addressed. Location is unbeatable!
Good place for me
I've lived here for a month now and it's been a pretty decent experience. I have a studio that fits a bed, desk, table, and couch (I could probably put more). The closet is very spacious! There are hooks and two hanging poles for your clothes and two (very high) shelves so I store a lot there. Also, the kitchen and bathroom were renovated so I appreciate that everything is new. The one thing about the kitchen is that it's pretty small but I can't really complain much because I am just one person, so it's enough for me. There's a laundry facility in the building and a desk attendant 24/7 which is a plus. To be completely honest, the best thing about the Chancellor Apartments is the location. It has the most reasonable price I've seen in the very busy/lively Center City. Management is also very nice and helpful. They're located in the building so that's convenient if you have any issues/questions.
I would recommend it to anyone working in Center City because the location is right in the midst of everything. Everything is walkable and there's a PATCO stop right on the corner.
Low Utility Bill Cost
Management is overall very responsive. I rent from an individual landlord, and overall she has been pretty good. It definitely helps that the only thing we have to pay for is electric as our internet and heat in the winter is free. Our electric bill is usually cheaper in the winter and more expensive in the summer. There is no central a/c but having lived in New England, this is not a dealbreaker for us. Very close to subway station, which is a plus as my husband works farther away.
It's loud, but it's central. There aren't many amenities, but there is a 24 hr doorman which in this area is crucial. Management isn't great, but they aren't horrible. Do I think this is the absolute best place to live in the area? No. But, I'm happy with the location, price and space and I plan on staying there at least another lease term. I've dealt with some horror show center city property management companies/apartment complexes and this is a welcome change of pace from that.
Mostly undergraduate students or young professionals. The location is great, because you have easy access to city transportation and a lot of great restaurants and bars just out the door. The only downside to that is that occasionally it can be very loud until late hours in the early morning.
Great location, great hardwoods, lots of light. Very noisy and the management company gets a solid C rating. If you're willing to sacrifice on service for location and price, this is definitely worth a look. But don't expect luxury living and prompt service.
