Profile: University City

Profile: University City

University City is a 15-minute journey from Philadelphia’s Center City district by the SEPTA network. Ever since the mid-1950s, it’s been the home of student life where campuses of the University of Pennsylvania, Drexel University, and other esteemed institutions sit side-by-side.

Academic life brings with it student pleasures, so there are great fast food outlets, bars, and bookshops in this area that can easily be reached on foot. You can also take in some art via the University City Public Art Series, a collaborative project which sees the streets of University City come alive with innovative artworks by local students.
