The TPC office located in City Center Philadelphia serves a dual purpose for our students. It is a ‘campus away from their campus’ and a ‘home away from their home.’
At the center students have access to a full kitchen, study areas, work spaces, a computer lab, printing services and free WIFI, in addition to classroom spaces.
At the heart of our 7th floor space is “The Commons,” an informal areas where students are frequently seen studying, collaborating and socializing together.
