One of the best parts about being a student at Penn is the fact that you are located in Philadelphia, just minutes away from the heart of Center City.
Whether you want to go shopping at Reading Terminal Market, see an exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, eat dinner in Chinatown, see a show at the Kimmel Center, hang out at Rittenhouse Square, catch a concert at the Electric Factory, or watch a Phillies game at the Citizens Bank Park, there is always something to do in Philadelphia.
Getting around the city is convenient and easy with Philadelphia’s public transportation system, SEPTA, or by walking or taking a taxi. When you get to Penn, you will experience for yourself why our students love being in Philadelphia!
