There are several parking facilities located on or near campus, as well as metered street parking. Street parking spaces are usually limited to either two or three hours. Some garages may charge a flat fee, and prices vary. Recommended garages and lots include:


  • 38th and Walnut Streets
  • 40th and Walnut Streets
  • Penn Tower Hotel (34th and Civic Center Boulevard)
  • Sheraton Hotel (36th and Chestnuts Streets)
  • Penn Tower Hotel (34th and Civic Center Boulevard)

The Penn campus is adjacent to Philadelphia’s Amtrak and SEPTA Regional Rail Station, and is a 15-minute drive from the Philadelphia International Airport, making the building easily accessible to users beyond the Penn campus.


Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) operates a coordinated system of bus, subway, elevated train and trolley lines that cover all of Philadelphia and parts of the surrounding counties. Exact change ($2.25) or a token is required. Weekly and Monthly SEPTA TransPasses are also available. Tokens are available at all subway stations and both TransPasses and tokens can be purchase on campus at the Penn Book Store. Fares are subject to change.
