Penn’s enormous academic offerings make it a school that has something for just about everyone looking to further their education, whether you’re continuing right on from high school, returning after a brief hiatus, or seeking out that advanced degree to help take your career to the next level. You can choose from a seemingly endless number of degrees within the university’s 12 schools, which have strong roots in both the arts and sciences.

The most popular areas of study within the school include finance, nursing, political science, biology, and economics. But while each of those are especially great options, the school’s sheer magnitude and volume of offerings make it a top choice for many additional pursuits.

Though you’ll be enjoying the benefits of living in an off-campus apartment at The Old Quaker Building, you still get to take advantage of all the perks that come with living so close to a sprawling, physical campus. University of Pennsylvania is swarming with an array of cultural attractions, including the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, which brings to the stage a wide assortment of performances, from musical to theatrical, featuring well-known and emerging artists and acts.

The Arthur Ross Gallery showcases original art and artifacts across all ranges of media, time periods, and cultures from around the world. Seminars are given on a regular basis and include presenters ranging from esteemed curators to university students.

On campus, you’ll also find one of the first libraries to open in the country. Founded by Benjamin Franklin, the University Library has been up and running nonstop since it opened its doors back in 1750. So not only will you be able to use this immense hub of knowledge during your studies, but you’ll simultaneously be submerged in its deep-rooted history.

Between the academics and the rich campus life, enrolling at and then finding an apartment near the University of Pennsylvania will be a life-changing experience. You’ll be in the perfect position to advance your education (and career) while being able to enjoy the city for all that it’s worth.
