Before Venturing to Arcadia in Spring 2022:

Campus Housing 

Arcadia is a residential campus, meaning that students who do not live within 25 miles live on campus for their first two years. Our residence life team fosters a welcoming community that celebrates diversity and encourages individuality. With dedicated health and safety support, students who live on campus graduate at a 30% higher rate.

In addition to exploring campus, Glenside, and Philadelphia, you’ll also get your KnightCard (student ID); discover ways to get involved; learn more about academic resources and expectations; and connect with returning students, faculty, and staff. Be sure to regularly check your Arcadia email for Venture details.
