Neighborhoods and Cost of Living
Philadelphia Area Communities
Many residents live in beautiful Victorian University City, Center City, or in the Art Museum vicinity, which is a five-minute drive or 15-minute walk or bike ride to the Penn campus. Other residents choose to live in Manayunk or Mount Airy, where renting a small home with a backyard is readily affordable. Still others live in Narberth, on Philadelphia’s Main Line, or in nearby Delaware County communities, where campus is little more than a 20-minute drive or a 15-minute train ride away.
