Important Changes for Graduate Housing

If you’re a new graduate student to Penn or planning your housing options for the 2023-2024 academic year, we wanted to share important changes to the housing inventory on and around campus.

Sansom Place West, which is currently Penn-managed graduate housing, will close at the end of the 2022-2023 academic year.  As you are looking for housing that is close to campus, our rental listing’s can help you find the perfect location for you to Live Penn. New apartments are opening in the area in time for the 2023-2024 school year, including the Accolade a privately managed graduate housing residence located on campus which has designated spaces specifically for Penn graduate and professional students. Studio, one- and two- bedroom graduate student apartments are available, designed with Penn graduate students in mind.

If you are a graduate student looking for leadership opportunities in our College Houses, check out the information on the College Houses & Academic Services website for Graduate Resident Advisor appointment.
