Application Process and Deadlines
Full-time LPS students enrolled in degree-granting programs may apply for housing at MyHomeAtPenn.upenn.edu beginning February 27, 2017 using their Pennkey and password. Students receive their Pennkeys once they have been entered into the student registration system by their schools.
Because returning Penn students have priority, LPS students are advised to list several room type preferences in order to increase the opportunities for assignment.
When applying, students must agree to the Terms and Conditions for University Housing, a legally binding contract, for the full occupancy period and are responsible for rent for the full term. Please read the cancellation policies before submitting the housing application.
Upon receiving a housing assignment, all students must log-in to MyHomeAtPenn to confirm or cancel their assignment. Confirming means a student acknowledges receipt of the assignment and intends to live on campus. Cancelling means that the student is no longer attending the University or no longer planning to living on campus. Students who cancel their assignments will be charged cancellation fees according to the Terms and Conditions.
Both undergraduate LPS and graduate LPS students are housed in Sansom Place, which includes a number of room types, such as:
Undergraduate students are housed on contiguous floors. The undergraduate occupancy period is for the academic year, August 24, 2016 - May 10, 2017, and rent is charged on a semester basis. The undergraduate occupancy period for 2017-2018 will be August 26, 2017 - May 9, 2018.
The graduate student occupancy period is August 27, 2016 - June 30, 2017. Rent is charged monthly and includes furnishings and utilities. Older undergraduate students may be placed in graduate housing. The graduate student occupancy period for 2017-2018 will be August 26, 2017 - June 30, 2018.
