The Return of Students to University City

Now that COVID 19 vaccinations have significantly increased, University City is ready to welcome students, instructors, families, and visitors back to the neighborhood for in-person teaching and campus activities this fall! This is great news for everyone at the University of Pennsylvania, Drexel University, University of Sciences, and for the businesses in the surrounding community. Although further guidance will be communicated leading up to the fall semester, Drexel is planning to welcome students back to the classroom on August 23, 2021, while Penn starts on August 25 and USciences follows on August 30. Perhaps the clearest sign that campus life is coming back is the return of college football on October 2 when Penn takes on Dartmouth at Franklin Field!

Philadelphia’s Best Apartments for Undergrad & Graduate Students

While at the time of writing, schools are planning on full capacity for their residence halls and dining facilities, things may change. One thing that won’t change: Reinhold Residential offers fantastic off-campus rental options for students in the University City neighborhood!

Located in the heart of the city’s academic district, The Hub on Chestnut Street and 3939 Chestnut are the perfect apartments for college students in Philadelphia. Each home is designed to give you all the freedom, space, and privacy that you need when you return to in-person, remote, or hybrid learning this fall. Dorms and on-campus housing can be expensive, crowded, and counterproductive for students who need quiet and comfortable surroundings that are better suited for studying, writing, practicing, and relaxing. The Hub on Chestnut Street offers studio, one- and two-bedroom choices for individual students or roommates, while our 3939 Chestnut apartments feature studio and one-bedroom options.

Reinhold Residential Apartment Highlights

All apartments include everything you need for comfortable off-campus living: a full kitchen with oven, microwave, refrigerator, and dishwasher, an in-unit washer and dryer, resident-controlled heat and air, and large windows that provide plenty of natural light and inspirational views of the neighborhood. Each location awards you with a short walk to the major universities, mass transit, 30th Street Station for Regional Rail and Amtrak trains, and lots of local shops, restaurants, and the popular World Cafe Live concert venue. Secure on-site bike storage is offered at 3939 Chestnut Street so you can park your ride without having to take up room in your living space.

Now that life is returning to normal, so should student life. This fall, it’s time to get back in the classroom, see your friends and favorite professors, and get back to the business of enjoying all the benefits of being a college student! The Hub at Chestnut and 3939 apartments for undergrad and graduate students in Philadelphia are ready to welcome you back!
