University City is an historic area filled with beautiful Victorian and Edwardian architecture while the campus is a mixture of architectural styles including the gorgeous Furness Library. In addition to the informal beauties of the campus, we also have more formal cultural resources such as the Institute for Contemporary Art (ICA) and The University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, considered one of the finest in the world. The University City area offers dining experiences that can satisfy nearly every palate and every budget, including a large, food court in Houston Hall.

Center City offers the Reading Terminal Market, which has many delightful shops and specialty places to eat. They are also near Philadelphia's Chinatown, which has many excellent restaurants such as . Philadelphia's famous "Restaurant Row" is not much further away (in distance, albeit not in price!). Halfway between the University and Downtown Philadelphia are Philadelphia's famous museums (Museum of Art, Rodin Museum, Museum of Natural History and the Franklin Institute all on the Parkway and the Museum of American Art (formerly, the Academy of Fine Arts) on Broad and Cherry Streets). Philadelphia's Historical District is also within walking distance to the east. Pictured in the background is Independence Hall from the Historic District.
