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.

Penn Transit introduces a new app to make using Late-night Shuttles easier!

Penn Transit has introduced a new application, PennTransit Mobile,  that allows you to request the University’s on-demand evening shuttle services from your mobile device.  Riders will experience the same evening shuttle transit service as they currently enjoy with Penn Transit’s on-demand shuttles.  But the new app allows riders to:

  • Monitor and track current ride status in real-time;
  • The ability to view fixed-route and on-demand options from one screen
  • Integrates bike sharing and walking options
  • Includes commonly requested campus points of interest

Available in the Apple Store and Google Play, the app is free and members of the Penn Community with valid PennKeys and PennCards are eligible for PennTransit Mobile.  You will be asked to input your PennKey and password in order to request a ride via the app.  St. Joseph's University passengers will be prompted to enter their own sign-in credentials. 

 Additional information about Penn Transit  is available at on the Parking and Transportation website.
