Spring 2021 Assignments

We know that your housing assignment is an important component of returning to campus, so we wanted to let you know that the information will be available to view in Campus Express starting on Saturday, October 31. To do so, please click on Housing and Mail Services and select Housing Assignment. On this page, you will be able to either confirm or request to cancel your booking.

All undergraduate on-campus assignments are the same rate of $5507.

 

Room rates in Sansom Place East are the same. For more information, click here.

We understand there are evolving situations for our international students and we will look into each case as a special circumstance. We still need students to accept their assignments, but if you are forced to cancel because of travel limitations or government policies, you will not be charged a cancellation fee.  Note: If you are a first-year student you will need to request a cancellation and indicate that you cannot live on campus due to international travel or visa restriction. 

You can look at typical room layouts and floor plans on Campus Express. Residential Services will not be able to provide specific pictures of your 2020-2021 room assignment. 

If you are unable to arrive on campus until after the first day of classes, you will be able to keep your room assignment, but you will have to pay for the entire semester, and you will also need to notify Residential Services of your arrival time by emailing living@upenn.edu.

As a first-year student you are required to live on campus. However, first-year and transfer students are able to request an exception to the first-year housing requirement only for the following reasons:

  • The need to continue to remotely learn due to international travel or visa restrictions
  • The need to continue to remotely learn from my home due to an underlying health condition
  • Previous approval to commute (within a 50-mile radius) or learn remotely from home for Fall 2020 and intend to commute or learn remotely again for the Spring semester.
  • A specific critical reason that requires a need to continue to live at home.

 

To request an exemption, log into Campus Express, request to cancel your assignment and follow the instructions. All requests will be reviewed and once verified, you will receive an email confirming the cancellation.  You may also be asked to provide additional details and documentation to support your cancellation/exemption request. You will receive an update on your request no later than 7 to 10 business days after your request is received.

Once assignments are available, you can log into Campus Express and request to cancel your assignment.

Residents will be able to request a room change from MyHomeAtPenn after they confirm their assignment in Campus Express. Please be aware that room changes will be limited and based on space availability.  First-year students will be assigned with other first-year students. 

We will do the best we can to accommodate your request. You will be reassigned if a space that meets any of your preferences is available, and you will receive notification of your room change by e-mail. You will not have the opportunity to review the new assignment before your booking is changed.

If you have listed a location that you are not willing to live in, please email living@upenn.edu with the subject line “Room Change Request Update” so we may expedite update your request. You will not have the opportunity to decline your room request.

Please note that if you are approved for a room change after you have selected your move-in timeslot, you will need to select a new move-in timeslot.

The room change form will be open until Tuesday, December 15 at 11:59 pm.

All ​​​​​​​residents will have their own private bedroom (no shared bedroom spaces) and no more than 6 students will be assigned to the same bathroom.

We ​​​​​​​made every effort to honor fall semester assignments. If you are interested in requesting a room change, please click here for more information.

If you were assigned a room Off-Campus, in Gregory or in Sansom Place East, your assignment will have changed.  ​​​​​​​
