About University City

Located just across the river from Philadelphia’s historic Center City, University City is located in West Philadelphia, and is home to two of the city’s major universities: The University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University. The area was first given its name in the 1950s, largely due to Penn’s presence. Now a vibrant college town, the area features museums and popular local eats, such as Federal Donuts—a donut shop created by Philadelphia’s famed Michael Solomonov, owner of Zahav.

Fun Fact: The University of Pennsylvania was started by one of the nation’s founding fathers, Benjamin Franklin
