We’re a city school. We’re a suburban school. Truth be told, we’re a little bit of both. At Chestnut Hill College, you can enjoy the benefits of a geographic identity crisis: a quaint, safe, charming campus on the outskirts of one of America’s largest cities and cultural epicenters. From the hiking trails of Fairmount Park to the cafes of the Chestnut Hill neighborhood to the museums of Philadelphia, you’ll be well occupied.

Just a short train, bus or car ride away is downtown Philadelphia. We like to think of the City of Brotherly (and sisterly) Love as our extended campus. Catch a band. Grab a bite in a city famous for its great food. When family and friends come to visit, let them treat you to some superb cuisine from one of Philly’s many 5-star restaurants. Soak up the culture at one of the city’s world-class museums or hit Old City, B3 or South Street for a night out on the town. America’s fifth largest city is also where you’ll find countless internship opportunities in every imaginable field. And as a student in the Philadelphia area, you’ll be among students from over 86 other colleges. So you’ll always be in good company. It’s all included in the Chestnut Hill College experience.
