Immerse yourself in the rich culture of Philly’s student district when you live in- between its most prestigious universities

20 S 36th St, University City, Philadelphia, 19104 View Map
181 student beds
With U Penn on one side and Drexel University on the other, The Axis couldn’t be better placed for getting to class, or for making the most of the area’s collegiate facilities. Meet your friends for a spin around the Class of 1923 ice rink, or to sunbathe in Drexel Park - a green oasis surrounded by skyscrapers. Take part in a student production at Mandell Theater and discover a passion for the stage; or cross the Schuylkill River to find inspiration among the many masterpieces in the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

At The Axis, you can walk to classes at Drexel University in under four minutes, and to U Penn in just 10. Stop by Avril 50 on your way to pick up all the stationery you could ever dream of, as well as a great cup of coffee for the walk! When you’re not busy with school, make the most of the bus and trolley stops nearby to explore the rest of the city. Head south to cheer on the Philadelphia Phillies pro baseball team at Citizens Bank Park.

When you don’t feel like adventuring across the city, you won’t mind spending time in your new home. Use the free Wi-Fi to get your work finished at your spacious desk area, then print your notes for your tutorials the next day at the on-site business center. When you’re done, clear your head with a session at the gym, then throw your workout clothes in the laundry and freshen up with a quick shower.

With work finished, it’s time to play. Relax in front of your own TV, or microwave some popcorn and meet your friends at the resident cinema. Afterwards, grab a pizza from the 24-hour Axis Café and Salad Bar or cook for yourself in your own kitchen. If you want a night out, choose something to wear from your walk-in closet and head downtown for dinner and a show. Try World Café Live to enjoy dinner while soaking up the atmosphere of a live gig.

At The Axis, restricted entry ensures your safety, while Resident Advisors are available to offer helpful advice. Best of all, with all utilities included in the rent, you never have to worry about hidden expenses.
