Short-Term Housing

There are several instances where members of the Penn community or Penn affiliates may be seeking short-term housing. Off-Campus Services recommends that international students or students who are unable to visit Philadelphia prior to the start of their academic program seek temporary housing while searching for a permanent residence. Visiting scholars, faculty and other Penn affiliates’ schedules may not sync up with the typical lease start date.
