Upperclass living on the Western Edge of Campus

New College House West - photo by E. SparksGutmann College House is entering its second year! Designed from the ground up to support the community goals of the College Houses at Penn, Gutmann welcomed its first residents in the beginning of the fall semester of 2021 and prepares to welcome a new class of upperclassmen with a permanent new name in honor of Penn's former President Amy Gutmann, who served in that office from 2004 until 2022 until she was appointed the United States' Ambassador to Germany.

Situated at the far western edge of campus (at 40th Street between Walnut and Locust Walk, next to Rodin and Du Bois College Houses), Gutmann College House is the residence of about 430 sophomores, juniors, and seniors.  The House provides all the benefits that come with a College House—faculty leadership and neighbors in the House, and a dedicated staff of professionals to assist with residents' needs, along with a House staff of student Resident Advisors to provide social and educational programming within the House. 

Gutmann College House has been built to include state-of-the-art in-House amenities, with communal study areas, common living and social spaces, seminar and music practice rooms, and other features that encourage the community that our on-campus residents have come to expect in the College Houses.  Gutmann also features a coffee bar, a meditation room, a fitness space, six club rooms with kitchens, and a tinker space.  With 2, 4, 5 and 6-bed suites and a location close to tons of dining and shopping options, Gutmann is a great addition to the College House family!New College House West - photo by E.
