Would like to piggyback on this as well.
Lots of good info in this thread. Best bet is usually Craigslist. West and South Philly run cheaper than Center City for the most part, but unless you're biking South Philly can be a bit of a commute. Grad Hospital (neighborhood between Center City and South Philly) is a popular choice - cute area, short bike ride or bus to school, and inexpensive. West Philly has some similarly nice and cheap neighborhood spots along Baltimore Ave, particularly from 35-45th Streets. In Center City walkups and condos range wildly in price, but you can easily find reasonably priced studios and even 1BRs. Some popular condo rental buildings in CC within walking distance of school are RiverWest, 3400 Chestnut, and 2121 Market.
Or, if you have a trust fund to blow, there's Domus.
