About CHAS


Mission Statement

The College Houses are residential communities for Penn undergraduates that:

  • Connect the academic life of the University with the residential experience.
  • Develop smaller, intimate communities that students call home and from which they can more comfortably navigate the complexities of a large university.
  • Provide academic and personal support to residents.
  • Promote social interaction, engagement, accountability and leadership within a setting that honors the diverse needs and backgrounds of the population.
