LPS Students

Application Process and Deadlines

Full-time undergraduate LPS students enrolled in degree-granting programs may apply for housing beginning March 2, 2020. Full-time graduate LPS students enrolled in degree-granting programs may apply for housing beginning April 1, 2020. To apply, please visit MyHomeAtPenn and log in using your PennKey username and password. Students receive their PennKeys once they have been entered into the Student Registration System by their schools.

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.

Assignment Process

Upon receiving a housing assignment, all students must log in to Campus Express 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 live on campus. Students who cancel their assignments will be charged cancellation fees according to the Terms and Conditions.
