Tips and Reminders


PhilaU has limited jurisdiction for responding to off-campus disturbances by its students, but may hold students accountable under its Community Standards policies in the Student Handbook.  Off-Campus students should review and understand guidelines, laws, and polices relating to living off-campus such as the ones provided HERE.  These are only suggestions and may not include all available materials regarding housing, tenants, and/or landlords.


If you are driving your own vehicle to campus, you must obtain a Parking Permit. Parking Permits are distributed by the Office of Safety and Security on the Ravenhill Campus. A campus map of approved Commuter Student parking will also be given to you. Please abide by the parking regulations outlined in the brochure.

To register your car, please go to the Safety and Security portion of the PhilaU website.


All Commuter Students must validate their Student ID each semester. This validation sticker lists the semester and year and is required to obtain a parking pass, utilize the library and visit the residence halls. Please see the Kanbar Campus Center Welcome and Information Desk to validate your Student ID.


Commuter Students who are interested in changing their status from Commuter to Resident should contact the Office of Residence Life.
