Welcome to life as an off-campus student!

Off-Campus Services is here as a resource to make sure you have the most successful off-campus living experience possible. As a student living off-campus in an apartment, you are undertaking a great responsibility. Keep yourself informed as a savvy renter by utilizing the resources on this website, participating in the educational initiatives sponsored by this office or contacting Off-Campus Services directly.

Even though you are living off-campus, you are still a representative of the University of Pennsylvania; you are accountable for your behavior both on and off campus. Become engaged not only in your academic community, but in your neighborhood as well. Philadelphia is a diverse city with a wide array of cultural, educational and community service opportunities available to its residents.  

On behalf of Off-Campus Services and the University of Pennsylvania, welcome to life off campus!
