No, we rent only the entire apartment. We do not rent rooms as we cater to graduate-level students and working professionals. You can have roommates, but you will all be on 1 lease where everyone is responsible for themselves and each other (Joint and Several Liability). This means you choose your own roommates or have no roommates.
Tenants pay electric and water fees which cover usage of washer/dryers.
The units do not come furnished. However, there are options available from 3rd party vendors which offer monthly furniture rentals. Please contact our office if furniture is required.
Street parking only. However, this area is not as congested as the prime center city, so it’s pretty easy to find a spot. Haverford Lofts may have some parking spots in the rear available for rent, inquire with the leasing office.
Yes – you can use our building wifi. However, if you want a private connection to be more secure or faster, you can get private service from Comcast.
There is a common trash area.
Each unit has a mailbox, so letters are no problem. You can order larger packages and they are usually left near the mailboxes in the lobby area. If you are receiving Amazon packages, we have an Amazon HUB in our lobby, or you can use Amazon@Penn in 1920 Commons along Locust Walk.
