Living and learning, at their best, combine to create the ultimate university experience at Penn. Penn Residential Services is here to connect you to the resources at the center of your residential experience. From managing your living spaces to taking care of the buildings that facilitate your participation in your College House, our focus is always on supporting you.
What We Offer
Home Away From Home
The College Houses offer distinct room types, amenities, and communities. Options range from traditional single and double rooms that share a common hallway and bathroom to suites and apartments offering more privacy, and in some cases, a living room and kitchen.
The Second-Year Experience
Two is better than One
Penn’s Second-Year Experience initiative includes a two-year housing requirement. Residential Services is supporting this commitment by providing new and distinctive housing options for students to build off of their first-year living in the College Houses.
