A New College House on the Western Edge of Campus

We are currently completing the construction of the newest College House, designed from the ground up to support the community goals of the College Houses at Penn.  New College House West (NCHW) is slated to open to students for the fall semester of 2021.

Situated at the far western edge of campus (at 40th Street between Walnut and Locust Walk, next to Rodin and Du Bois College Houses), New College House West will be the residence of about 450 sophomores, juniors, and seniors.  The House will also provide 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. 

New College House West is being 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.  NCHW will also feature 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, New West will be a great addition to the College House family!
