About this Residence Hall
University Housing and Residential Life is committed to offering our students diverse environments to live, learn and grow as members of the North Philadelphia community.
Given the limited availability of on-campus, traditional housing, University Housing and Residential Life may enter into agreements with properties adjacent to campus that offer many of the same amenities and features that are traditional on-campus residence halls offer. University Housing and Residential Life has partnered with the Edge Avenue North complex to offer additional beds for its on-campus population. Details about these properties can be found on this page.
There is an anticipated 3% increase to the current housing rates for the 2018-2019 year.
