The College Houses offer distinct room types, amenities, and communities. Options range from traditional single and double rooms that share a common hallway bathroom to suites and apartments offering more privacy, and in some cases, a living room and kitchen.

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.
Harnwell College House is one of three Upperclass Community 24-floor high rise buildings located on the west side of Penn’s campus. Students can choose from a variety of apartment-style room types from a single room, to a four-bedroom quad, all with private baths. The College House cultivates friendly, open communities in which cultural and intellectual exchange is balanced by civility and mutual respect. This diversity allows residents to enjoy the high-rise space with the feeling of a small community.
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.
