Welcome to Penn Engineering! We’re thrilled that you’ve decided to join us for your graduate studies. Here is some information that we hope will help get you started on your journey.

Get to Know Philly!


Shortly after you accepted the offer you should have received an email with your PennKey Setup Code and instructions for using it to setup your PennKey and Password which will be used to access all electronic/web based systems while you’re here. You’ll need your PennKey in order to access CampusExpress, the on campus housing system. If after a few weeks you have not received your PennKey Setup Code, you can contact the PennKey office.

Campus Express

“As you make your plans for the upcoming spring semester, we encourage you to take advantage of the wide range of services the University has in place to help make your life on campus comfortable, convenient and fun! With Campus Express, you can access the most essential student services from one central website.”


Penn has on campus housing for our graduate as well as undergraduate students. Students also live off campus and we have an office that will help you with that search. Both of our housing offices are extremely informative and helpful.

  • On Campus Housing
  • Off Campus
    • Off-Campus Services assists students, faculty and staff at all stages of their off-campus living experience. The office provides information on housing options, landlords, roommates, leasing, tenant rights and responsibilities, utilities, insurance, safety and tenant feedback.

Franklin Building

The Franklin Building is the Campus Administration Center and houses several offices you may need on campus. First stop – the PennCard Center where you’ll get your ID.
