"A community of citizen scholars"

Lauder College House is located in the northeastern corner of Penn’s campus, on the expansive and historic Hill Field. It carries LEED Silver Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, meaning that we take our sustainability seriously! 

Students move in to New College House.

From our Green Roof to our Courtyard, which functions as a sponge to slowly return rainwater to the ground and the nearby Schuylkill River, we’re invested as a community in actions big and small that can have a positive impact on our environment. Over the course of the year, we’ll also, of course, use our courtyard as a gathering space for social events, group or personal study--or just taking in the rays. And in the winter, you can sit by a cozy fire in our Living Room and watch the Philadelphia sleet and snow through the window. 

As a member of our community, you have the opportunity to imagine and craft your own experiences. By living in Lauder College House, we intend to grow and develop as individuals and as active citizens in our residential, Penn, Philadelphia, and future communities. 

Together, we implement this by raising our consciousness of what’s happening in the world around us, building a community where belonging is centered, developing our skills to thrive in various situations, and exploring the world and our responsibilities to the communities we belong to. What will your contribution be?

Lauder is more than just a house, it’s a home: your home, our home.
