Summer Life at Penn

Summer Life at Penn

Summer is the perfect season to be a student at Penn. With Penn Summer programs, you can enjoy flexible class schedules that allow you to dive into subjects that excite you—and take courses that fit into your summer plans. 

Studying at Penn puts you in the heart of the vibrant University City district, a neighborhood full of restaurants, shops, parks, film houses, and museums. Off campus, you’ll find Philadelphia offers both historic charm and modern innovation—and it’s easily accessible since Philadelphia is one of the most walkable cities in the nation.
