I'm having a hell of a time trying to find a good location to live in order to attend University of Philadelphia.

I have a 7 year old son, so I want to be in a good area for him to attend school as well as a location near the things we like too do such as restaurants, shopping, movies etc. I looked into Harrisburg but then realized that drive would be horrible. I have no idea I found one condo in Clayton nj but its ok. Can someone give any suggestions this is stressing me out!!! Thanks

Clayton is not a town that I have ever recommended. What's you're housing budget? I assume that you're looking for a rental.

Are you planning to attend University of Pennsylvania or Philadelphia University? They are not the same place.

Whether you're attending Philly U. or UPenn, Collingswood would be my first reccomendation. School's aren't too bad, housing isn't terribly expensive, safety isn't an issue, the population is diverse (by SJ standards at least) and you can take mass transit to access either school.

I wouldn't commute to Philadelphia University from New Jersey. Either PA or NJ is fine for UPenn.

Collingswood for proximity and school, 100%. Clayton is definitely a bad choice from proximity to low school district.
