This thread is too quiet.
Looking for housing and checking out everything at Penn and Philly
How about you guys?
Same here. Is anyone considering living in the graduate housing? I don't know much about it, but it seems convenient.
Penn's on campus housing, Sansom Place, is definitely convenient, and some people are reasonably happy with it. I was personally unimpressed when I visited. Dim hallway lighting, just seemed like a miserable atmosphere.

Sansom Place is pretty pricey. For $1500 a month, you could get a room in a luxury high rise near campus like the Radian or 2400 Chestnut which are much nicer.

If you were looking at the lower tier of rooms, at over $800 a month, you can get a decent studio near campus - you can check out craigslist or Penn's off campus housing search.
Check out the Penn Students taking questions thread, there's a bunch more information in there. Also - wait until ASW - I'm sure the welcome committee will be very helpful and informative regarding housing.
I've been working with these guys. They have some very reasonable options.
