Walk to class at UPenn in seven minutes, and reach Drexel in 15. Get around the city fast thanks to Locust’s bike share program, and when you want to travel further afield you’re minutes from 30th Street Station, the city’s railroad hub. If you have a car, there’s garage parking on-site.
Although you’ll be spoilt for things to do in the area, there are plenty of reasons to stay home at Locust on the Park. Get to know your neighbors at the monthly residents’ socials, then enjoy group hangouts in the clubhouse, where you can chat about your day, get together to watch TV or simply sit back on the sofa and admire the spectacular city views.
After a long day at college, clear your head with a workout in the 24-hour fitness center. When you need some fresh air, head out onto your tree-lined, cobblestone street and take a run along picturesque waterfront esplanade of Schuylkill River Park. Back in your loft apartment, cook dinner in your sleek, modern kitchen and catch up with your roommates over your favorite meal. You can share your home with up to two others, or enjoy total privacy in a self-contained studio.
There’s plenty of space to study in your room, but if you prefer company you can take your books to the lounge area or find a shady spot in the gated courtyard. You’ll find high-speed Wi-Fi throughout, so you can get your work done wherever you like. For a change of scenery, meet friends at popular hangout The Porch. When you get home, you’ll be greeted by a 24-hour desk attendant, who’s always on hand to help if you need help or advice.
