 "To be rather than to seem"

From top to bottom, Rodin is full of opportunity. At the top of the high rise, our Rooftop Lounge hosts event and study space surrounded by a view that can only be described as breathtaking. Downstairs in the House Office and Rodin Resource Room, you will find helpful student staff along with a host of amenities to make your life in Rodin more comfortable. Throughout the building are quiet study spaces for individuals or groups to utilize, and the basement level hosts two music practice rooms.

Rodin Room


Rodin offers a variety of opportunities for students to engage with interests beyond a classroom setting. Our Residential Programs include TRAC (The Rodin Arts Collective), Jewish Cultural Studies, Leadership Residential Program, and the Balanced Living Community. You could take part in a discussion hosted by a Rodin faculty member. A popular past event was “Research Roadmap: Learn R in an Hour”, hosted by Prof. Dan Gillion, Rodin's Faculty Director. The #rodinCARES team provides programs to support balance in the life of our residents. Another great way to get involved is House Council, a student governing board that works to improve the Rodin experience.  

Underground Shakespeare

The Rodin staff works hard to provide experiences that will appeal to any interest. Every other Tuesday, stop by the lobby for Tower Hour, our bi-weekly study break full of fun and food. Join us for Rodin_24, a dinner and discussion series. Keep an eye out for other great Rodin activities such as Sunday Brunch, Sophomore Snacks, and Monday Morning Mirth.  

We cannot wait for Rodin to be a part of your University of Pennsylvania story.
