Living in Gregory Next Year?

Are you an incoming first-year student living in Gregory next year?  Congratulations on choosing Penn -- and we're so happy to be your new home away from home! 


Please check out our First-Year Student page, full of useful links about the House: our traditions, course communities, suggestions about what to bring and what to discuss with your future roommates, room floorplans, and much more. It should answer many of your initial questions about the place; be sure to check the links, but contact us with any questions!


See you in late August!



Welcome to Gregory, where residents believe that a college house should be more than just a place to study for your Econ 001 midterm, sleep in a one-bedroom, and grab the occasional free slice of pizza. Although the House does provide all that, it is also a place where you can explore new things and feel a real sense of community.

For a start, Gregory celebrates diversity through its Modern Languages Program and cinema through the Film Culture series. But even if German leaves you tongue-tied and the Oscars give you a headache, you will still be welcomed to Sunday brunches, study breaks, and weekly BYOM hot chocolate nights with open arms. With a supportive network of GAs, RAs and dynamic student staff, there's always something going on and someone to talk to - this is a house that's got your back.

So try a new French phrase in the mosaic-festooned Greenhouse, engage in a Star Wars vs. Star Trek debate in the Film Lounge, or simply laugh until you can't breathe in the piano lounge when you're supposed to be studying - this is a House that will embrace you. Visit for a while, or stay four years. Either way, we hope you'll feel at home here.
