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 and Sansom Place 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

Starting this year, with the incoming class of 2024, Penn’s Second-Year Experience initiative will include 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.
