The University of Pennsylvania Commencement ceremony will take place at Franklin Field on May 15th, and will feature remarks by Commencement speaker Cory Booker. The site for commencement is just a 15-minute drive or 20-minute train ride from from Center City and the Independent Hotel. We offer the perfect location to experience Philadelphia while staying close to the venue where all the commencement activities will unfold.
While you’re in town to celebrate, be sure to check out the excellent dining and shopping experiences in our neighborhood, Midtown Village. Enjoy graduation dinners right downstairs at Bud & Marilyn’s or Little Nonna’s, and pick up some last-minute presents from Bella Turka, Paper on Pine, or Duross & Langel.
