The Student Activities Program at the University serves a vital role in enriching the quality of life on campus by providing involvement opportunities. The program offers the opportunity for the development of lifelong professional and leadership skills and serves as the conduit for diverse ideas, cultures, lifestyles and experiences. Student Activities oversees campus-wide programming and commuter programs. The various components of the student activities area are housed in the Kanbar Campus Center.

The Student Government Association (SGA) is an independent, self-governing student group.

In addition to the SGA and the Campus Activities Board, there are approximately 70 social, cultural, professional, performing arts, spiritual and special interest clubs and organizations at the University. Philadelphia University has two national social fraternities and two national social sororities, in addition to professional and honors Greek organizations.
