Wharton Student Housing Survey

Dear Students, 

Each year we strive to gather housing information from the current student body so that we may provide our current and admitted students with the most up to date reviews and recommendations on where to live in Philly.  In recent years, to produce a higher quality housing guide we teamed up with VeryApt, a Wharton startup founded by WG’14s Scott Bierbryer and Ashrit Kamireddi.  When you have a moment, please take the short survey below.  Providing your housing information and reviews gives you a voice in the Philadelphia real estate scene and provides valuable guidance for future Wharton students.  Thank you in advance, and if you wish to view the existing Wharton housing guide, you can find it on Veryapt.com.
