Investing in West Philadelphia's Quality of Life

Fresh Grocer

University City, the area of West Philadelphia home to Penn's campus, is the neighborhood of choice for families, students, faculty, staff, small businesses and visitors. It is a thriving location for retailers, cafes and restaurants.

Penn's strategic neighborhood investments and community partnerships are a recognized national model. This includes assessing and communicating Penn's economic impact on the region, managing economic inclusion programs, supporting small businesses, local commercial corridors, housing, and homeownership.
