WELCOME TO YOUR
HOME AT PENN

WE TAKE CARE OF YOUR RESIDENTIAL ESSENTIALS SO YOU CAN LIVE PENN.

THE QUINTESSENTIAL PENN LIVING EXPERIENCE

My home away from home

Living and learning, at their best, combine to create the ultimate university experience at Penn. At Residential Services, we are here to connect you to the resources at the center of your residential experience. From managing your living spaces to taking care of the buildings that facilitate your participation in your College House, our focus is always on supporting you.

INFORMATION FOR:

COLLEGE HOUSES

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME—
AWAY FROM HOME

The College Houses offer distinct room types, amenities, and communities. Options range from traditional single and double rooms that share a common hallway bathroom to suites and apartments offering more privacy, and in some cases, a living room and kitchen.

THE SECOND YEAR EXPERIENCE

TWO IS BETTER THAN ONE

Starting next year, with the incoming class of 2024, Penn’s Second Year Experience initiative will include a two-year housing requirement. Residential Services is supporting this commitment by providing new and distinctive housing options for students to build off of their first year living in the College Houses.
