Individual Leases

Individual leasing means peace of mind for you. Your financial responsibility is only for your student’s space unlike many apartments or rental houses where a joint lease is signed. If a roommate transfers to another school or moves out of evo for any reason, you do not have to worry about having to cover their portion of rent. This is just another reason why evo Philly is a University City student’s best housing option!

On-site Professional Staff

Our maintenance staff will respond to your student’s maintenance issues quickly and professionally. Evo offers 24-hour emergency maintenance as well so that your student’s comfort is not affected.

Affordable Floor Plans

Evo has many spacious floor plan options so they will easily be able to find one to suit their needs. We have studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, three-bedroom, and four-bedroom apartments. Your student’s rent is all inclusive of utilities (electricity*, gas, water, sewer, trash), premium cable, wired and Wi-Fi internet throughout the entire building, furniture, access to evo’s amenities, and so much more!

Roommate Matching

Evo Philly is a fully-furnished community, saving you money! Each student will have a full-sized bed, desk and chair, dresser, full–size closet, and wardrobe. The living area comes with a comfortable couch*, chair, coffee table, and dining table with chairs. The kitchen comes fully equipped with energy efficient appliances, full sized stove and oven, refrigerator with icemaker, microwave, dishwasher, and washers & dryers.

Resident Events to Keep Students Involved

While the main focus of your student’s college career will be about graduating and getting a fulfilling job, they also need to have fun along the way. At evo, your student will create life-long relationships and connections that will make them even more successful. Our great staff plans monthly resident events to get them involved. These events range from grocery bingo to progressive dinners. Evo Philly will also have events such as a Masquerade Ball, Rad your Pad contests, and a large competition among the residents and staff, as well as, many holiday events throughout the year. We will also keep our residents connected to events going on in University City, as well as, events happening around Philadelphia so they don’t miss anything! We want your student to succeed, and that’s why we thought of them while designing evo as a Living-Learning environment!

FAQ Accordion

What does it mean to have an individual lease?

Individual leasing means that each person is only responsible for their portion of the common areas and their bedroom. If your roommate ends up not coming back for the spring semester or has co-op, you’re not responsible for their payment.

What is included in the rent?

Evo Philly’s rent makes life easy. Your rent is all inclusive of: utilities (electricity*, gas, water, sewer, trash pickup), premium cable, wired & Wi-Fi internet, washers & dryers, access to all of evo’s community amenities, and a wonderful staff that is there to help you anytime you need them.

Do you have a roommate matching system?

Yes, we offer a roommate matching system. If you don’t have anyone in mind that you would like to live with, let us match you up with someone! There is a Resident Profile that you will fill out to let us know more about what you’re looking for in a roommate. After the application process is completed, we personally find the best match for you based on that information.

When is my rent due?

Rent is always due the 1st of the month. You can pay up front (due August 1), in semester installments (due August 1 and January 1), or in twelve installments (due August 1 and on the first of the month for the next 11 consecutive months).

How do I pay my rent?

  • Pay with a personal check, money order, or cashier’s check.

Do you allow pets?

Is there insurance coverage in the event of a fire, theft or natural causes? Does my lease provide coverage for my belongings?

Evo’s insurance will not cover your personal belongings. We suggest getting renter’s insurance for this reason. It is generally inexpensive and will cover your personal belongings if something were to happen.

What if I need to break my lease or don't return for the spring semester?
