How to find us


The University of Pennsylvania stands on the Indigenous territory known as "Lenapehoking," the traditional homelands of the Lenape people, also called Lenni-Lenape or Delaware Indians. These are the people who, during the 1680s, negotiated with William Penn to facilitate the founding of the colony of Pennsylvania, in hopes of encouraging peaceful co-existence.
