Travel & Hotel


The University of Pennsylvania is easily accessible by public transportation. Amtrak services Philadelphia’s 30th Street Station, which is in walking distance of the campus. By air, Philadelphia International (PHL) is the most convenient, with rail connections to the downtown.

If driving, please be aware that Philadelphia is notorious for towing vehicles. Please ensure that you’ve parked your car in a safe and tow-free location!
