Trustees approve another New House

The Board of Trustees on November 2 approved the construction of a new College House at 40th and Locust Walk, to be opened in 2021. New College House West, as it is being called, will be a 250,000 sq. ft. residence, Penn's second to be built specifically to meet the needs of the College House program. Penn News has more details.

Our doors are open to Faculty

Faculty play a major role in our mission. Within our House communities, they encourage intellectual inquiry, and promote spirited discussions and interactions. Penn Current recently interviewed the Faculty Director of New College House, Prof. Cam Grey, about his experiences in nearly a decade of living as a faculty mentor in the College Houses.
