Residential Life

Penn is a place where all your interests will thrive— from academics, resident life, extracurriculars, social opportunities, and more. 

We get it—academics are really important. But let’s be real—your college experience will be defined by so much more than what goes on inside the classroom. Here at Penn, you’ll have access to an array of opportunities to shape your undergraduate experience into one that fits all your interests and aspirations. 

When you step foot onto Penn’s campus, you’ll be immersed in a diverse, yet tight-knit community where you’ll build relationships that’ll last a lifetime. As you explore campus, you’ll find yourself surrounded by ever-evolving greenery (we are a certified arboretum!) while also being right in the middle of vibrant Philadelphia, a city that offers something for everyone. Trust us when we say that there’s always something going on right on campus and throughout the city. Penn offers the best of both worlds!
