What does UPenn look for in international students?
While undergraduate students often prefer to live in close proximity to their classes, clubs and friends, UPenn graduate students, nursing residents and professional employees typically require more spacious living conditions that can accommodate a more flexible schedule. This is one reason why the majority of UPenn off campus housing options tend to be outside of the first block or two surrounding the quadrangle.
The latest apartment complexes to go up in the University City neighborhood are aimed at attracting graduate students, medical residents and professional employees looking for modern amenities without the higher price tag associated with some of the most luxurious student rentals on the market. One example is Luna on Pine, which boasts studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments that can be leased fully furnished or unfurnished. Residents enjoy perks such as an Equinox club room, ridesharing waiting area in the lobby, a dedicated package room, rooftop decks and co-working spaces.
Other apartment complexes such as Metropolitan Wynnewood are based in older buildings further away from UPenn’s main campus that were once single-family homes. These apartments typically include a furnished bedroom within a single-family home that can be rented to a number of students and/or staff members in a shared living arrangement.
