I was wondering if non-students typically live in the UC area? I recently finished undergrad and got a job offer in the area. I looked at places in Center City but they were in the upper echelon of my price range and UC seems to be a lot cheaper. If this not the case, I would love to know where recent grads typically live. I'm pretty unfamiliar with the area so any information is helpful!

Thanks

University City is beginning to transform from a college setting to a dynamic urban neighborhood. Grad students would certainly fit in University City.

I think recent grads can land in a few different places depending on what they like personally. If you like university city that is an excellent choice.

I'm not a student ( I graduated in 1977! ) and I live in University City.

It's a very diverse population: students and non-students; young families with children and older retirees; people of all races and religions; immigrants from Ethiopia, Eritrea, India, Pakistan, North Africa and the Middle East, and eastern Asia; upper-middle class professionals and blue collar workers; straight, gay, and transgender people. You name it. The more expensive neighborhoods are Garden Court and Spruce Hill, not so pricey is Powelton Village, Cedar Park, and Squirrel Hill.

Any more questions?
