Move-In and Move-Out are two of the biggest times of year for Penn Housing, and we're here to make the transition easy. Planning ahead is a good way to successfully meet academic demands while organizing to move in or out of your residence.
Living and learning, at their best, combine to create the ultimate university experience at Penn. At Residential Services, we are here to connect you to the resources at the center of your residential experience.
Gregory College House is a low-rise Four-Year Community comprised of two buildings; Van Pelt Manor and Class of 1925. Featuring suite-style rooms with private baths, students live in either singles, doubles, or two types of quads, all with private bedrooms. This close-knit quirky, eclectic community comes together almost daily for film screenings or movie marathons in their state-of-the-art Cinema Lounge. Residents can also take part in one of four Language Houses including enjoying an International Dinner featuring dishes specific to their language. Whether enjoying the Greenhouse or the Yoga studio, students can always find a way to connect with their fellow residents at Gregory.
Gregory will have air conditioning starting in fall 2021!
We believe one of the most important ways to feel at home is to make sure your room is equipped with everything you need. That means giving you a foundation, but also providing the space to make your room uniquely yours; a place to call home.

The Gregory College House Family
Gregory College House is a time-tested and proudly idiosyncratic alternative to the larger College Houses. Residents are a mix of all years and backgrounds; contributing to Gregory’s unique combination of the private and the social. All residents have plenty of private space when they need it, but is also a community that offers many opportunities for students to hang out with their neighbors at regular social get-togethers.
