Welcome to the KRF Management website.

KRF is a rental housing provider in the University City section of Philadelphia. Our offerings are conveniently located for affiliates of the University of Pennsylvania and the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia. Near enough to walk, bike, or skate to campus and also served by the schools’ van services. Yet far enough away to minimize, if not totally avoid, the noise and congestion inescapable in a high-student-density environment.
