See our Directions page for driving and walking (for once you’re on Penn’s campus) directions to Fagin Hall—our building. Penn’s Visitors’ Guide also provides an overview for campus visitors including links for nearby accommodations and suggested things to see and do while you are here.


Parking at the School of Nursing is extremely limited and due to the adjacent hospitals, cars parked in unauthorized areas will be towed. Parking lots are available at 34th and Chestnut Streets and Franklin Field (33rd and South Streets). Limited metered parking is also available on streets throughout the campus. 

Due to limited parking, we suggest that you take public transportation whenever possible. Penn’s Transportation and Parking page highlights numerous public and alternative transportation options. 

Admissions visits

If you are visiting as a prospective student, you’ll want to contact our Admission staff to schedule an appropriate time to come to campus to meet with an Admission counselor who will tailor your visit to meet your educational interests.
