Housing For Returning Juniors And Seniors

Housing accommodations will be available for students entering their junior and senior year as long as they lived on campus the previous year. We anticipate offering several hundred spaces during the annual Housing Selection Process for students who have expressed an interest in remaining in on-campus housing who submit the $250 housing deposit. The Office of University Housing and Residential Life will provide regular updates with regard to the Housing Selection Process and the availability of additional accommodations for upper-class students throughout the process.

Please feel free to call the Office of University Housing and Residential Life at (215) 204-7184 to speak to a staff member. We look forward to assisting you in identifying housing options for the upcoming school year and addressing any additional questions or concerns you may have.
