Transfer Living Community

Program Overview

The Transfer Living Community (TLC) will be a space for transfer students who reside on campus to interact and learn from one another. Incoming and returning transfer students will live in this community and form a mentoring relationship with one another. New transfer students who join this community can immediately be immersed in the Penn community while also having neighbors who have shared experiences with them. TLC will be a community that enhances the transfer student experience through fun and creative ways.
