Located just over the west side of the South Street Bridge lays University City, a desirable section of West Philadelphia, which caters to the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University students, staff, and alumni. University City boundaries
surround 29th Street and the Schuylkill River to 50th Street; Spring Garden Street to Powelton Avenue and Market Street. University City is home to The University of Pennsylvania, Wharton Business School, the University’s Law/Medical/Dental Schools
and Hospitals, as well as Drexel University and its newest Law School. It is known as Philadelphia’s 1st suburb. This dynamic neighborhood gets its distinctive spirit from the combination of college students, faculty, artists, and families. It is
one of Philadelphia’s most varied and lively neighborhoods where you can find anything from gorgeous single homes in tiny tree-lined streets to contemporary condos with city views.
