Hello, I will be working in Philly starting next January and need to find a cheap apartment. I would be willing to share housing but don't want to go higher than $500 monthly for an apartment.

I need internet access and a washer dryer in the unit. I would like a furnished apartment prefereably one with easy rail access.

My job will be from around January 13th to May 13th.

Considering your previous participation on this forum, I'm surprised that you weren't aware of how little $500 will get you here. It would get you the basics at best in a single occupancy apartment. It might even be a stretch to get everything else you're asking for.

If you've already perused the list by that dude name Craig. check out the off-campus housing departments for Penn, Drexel and Temple. You might be able to find a house sharing situation or at least a room for rent from a live-in landlord.
