About USciences

Philadelphia

USciences students truly enjoy the best of both worlds — a green and modern college campus nestled in the heart of a world-class city. There’s so much to see and do in Philadelphia, and it’s all a quick bike, trolley, or bus ride away. Bring your appetite to the Reading Terminal Market, one of the oldest and greatest public food markets in the country. Tour the birthplace of American democracy at Independence Hall and behold the magnificent Liberty Bell. Visit cultural icons like the Philadelphia Museum of Art or the fascinating Mütter Museum. It’s all right here!

  • The city is your campus. Immerse yourself in America’s living history, experience world-class art and culture, and choose from boundless internship and job opportunities.
  • Philadelphia was made for students. There are more than 30,000 students in University City alone and more than 300,000 in the region.
  • Philly is a city of 14 authentic and eclectic neighborhoods, each with its own distinct flavor and attractions — explore them all!
  • Connect with alumni and great jobs. There are more than 100 hospitals and 150 research labs near campus. No wonder so many USciences alumni stay in Philadelphia.
