Hi guys,
My sister recently got a job with Temple University and is looking for an apt in the area.
However, she is handicapped, and gets around in a walker. She is looking for a handicap accessible apartment (so walk-in shower, and a big enough bathroom to move around in). A studio would be fine for her. Her budget is $600 a month max.

She actually would live in Temple Housing if able to, but I don't believe the price is right. I think she told me for a handicapped accessible apt, it is $600 but she would have to live with 4 other girls.

She works on 13th and Cecil Beil Moore, so it would be best if she could live as close as possible to this address.

Does anyone have an recommendations? Safety is definitely a concern.

Thank you so much.

Some of the university affiliated apartment buildings around Temple might be able to accommodate you. Look into University Village, Oxford Village, of The Edge apartment buildings. They all have handicap accessible rooms. There's a lot of newer student apartments being built around Temple, but I don't know how they fare on handicap accessibility. Those buildings I listed also have private security, as well as coverage from Temple's police force and are immediately adjacent to the campus itself which is probably one of the safest parts of the city due to the high levels of security. The Edge is even a block from where your sister would be working at.
