Penn Home Ownership Services helps foster the University's commitment to neighborhood development by offering incentives and support to faculty and staff to purchase and renovate homes in West Philadelphia. The office offers eligible employees the opportunity to apply for financing for home purchase or improvement.

Penn's College Houses provide supportive residential communities for the education of undergraduate students. The Houses serve as microcosms of the University's intellectual variety and strengths, experienced outside of the conventional classroom.
Off-Campus Services has listings of hostels and student residences, bed and breakfasts, and hotels in the area. Reasonably priced short-term housing options are in very short supply.
