If you live in University City, you can take the train to the airport either from 30th Street Station (near Powelton Village and Drexel Univ.) or from the University City train station near Penn and HUP (Hospital of the Univ. of Pennsylvania) near South Street and Convention Blvd. (roughly 32nd Street).

Unless they are sleeping in UPenn dorms I don't think the distance is different. Both 30th and University City regional rail stops are awkward to get close to. If you want a cheap regional rail stop that gets all the trains then temple might be a choice.

University City or South Philly would be the best areas based the things you've listed

Thanks for all the responses. On the flipside, if I do bring my car to Philly, are there any other safe, young neighborhoods i should look into. That would make public transportation not a consideration. (my goal though is to move as little stuff as possible to Philly as I will be moving again to Charlotte in 6-12 months)

you could always try living near Suburban Station or somewhere within walking distances of the Market East stop.

www,4wallsinphilly.com or Trulia - Real Estate, Homes for Sale, Apartments for Rent, Local data with the "rent " option and zip 19103 or 19107 or 19102 You can find something small without a roommate for 1,000 in any of the Center City neighborhoods which are most convenient to mass transit including trains to the airport. There will be no parking. That's another 300 or so.

True, with the caveat that Manayunk isn't exactly convenient for a daily commute to the airport.
