Penn students affected by University Realty delays move in, but continue to face housing problems

In December, the company provided moving services to 64 displaced students living in temporary units at the Homewood Suites hotel located at 4109 Walnut St. or Vue32 located at 3201 Race St. Tenants who did not want to use their services were given a budget to hire third-party movers instead.
