How can I call my family when I am there?

Most housing options offer telephone service. It is recommended that students buy phone cards, which they can use from any telephone to make a call. Phone cards can be purchased at Wawa (38th and Spruce Streets) and the Penn Bookstore (3601 Walnut Street).

How can I mail things home when I am there?

There is a post office on 40th Street, between Spruce and Walnut Streets, where students can buy stamps and send mail or packages. Courier services are offered at the Campus Copy Center located on Walnut Street between 40th and 39th Streets.
