Academic Year Housing ApplicationIf a student did not participate in Room Selection and would still like to live on campus, he or she can apply for housing online at MyHomeAtPenn.upenn.edu. Students who apply for housing through the academic year housing application are placed on a list to await openings that match their preferences. Students are housed from this list from March to August and are notified by email if their request has been met.
Spring HousingStudents returning from time away from campus, including study abroad programs, can apply for spring housing at MyHomeAtPenn.upenn.edu beginning October 1st. For more information on the spring housing process, click here.
