West Chester is placed among towns in the Northeast that offer the best college experience to students, writes Mihaela Buzec for RentCafe

To determine the best college towns in the Northeast, RentCafe scored towns using 13 metrics which were divided into three main categories: livability, affordability, and quality of education. 

West Chester – home to West Chester University – ranked in fourth place overall as well as for affordability. The town offers students many options for a balanced cost of living and tuition. 

The town has a population of around 18,500, and it is a key point for many neighboring places thanks to the location. 

While West Chester has plenty of entertainment options on its own, its proximity to Philadelphia means students have access to an even wider array of entertainment opportunities. Additionally, being located less than an hour from Philadelphia also increases the number of readily available internships and/or employment options for those who do not mind doing the commute.
