Room for every idea. Resources for every goal.
Moore's beautiful urban campus is located right in the center of it all, on the historic Benjamin Franklin Parkway. With two main buildings, Wilson Hall and Sarah Peter Hall, and two residence halls, Stahl and Sartain, our campus feels spacious, airy and bright, and also completely manageable and easy to navigate.
Study in one of our comfortable lounge areas or curl up by the fireplace in Jane's Corner, where you can grab a bite to eat with your friends. There are also three outdoor courtyard spaces and Aviator Park right across the street for outdoor gatherings.
Our main campus buildings on Race Street offer a world of facilities and resources to fuel your creative drive. Here are just a few:

Your Campus Cheat Sheet
Wondering how to find the places you'll need to visit most often? We've got you covered.
Our Ground Floor hosts many lounge and dining spaces, including the Dining Hall, Fox Commons and Jane's Corner, right next to the Moore Café. It's also where you'll find large gathering spaces like Graham Auditorium and the Great Hall. And don't forget the six public exhibition spaces of The Galleries at Moore, plus the Student Run Gallery.
Sarah Peter Hall
Many classes are held in Sarah Peter Hall, which connects directly with Wilson Hall via the ground and fourth floors. On the first floor, you'll spend a lot of time researching and writing in the Connelly Library and Margaret Minik Writers Studio. Head to the third floor to check out the Materials Library, and the sixth floor to visit the Fab Lab and Photo Cage.
In the VAULT, you'll find our Print Center, Fine Arts studios and maker spaces, and digital labs and studios for everything from animation to digital illustration and film and game editing. It's a place to get your hands dirty, to geek out with friends, and to decompress. It's also where our IT Department works.
In addition to hosting residences on campus (our other residence hall is Sartain, located a block away from the main campus on Cherry Street), you'll find Student Affairs, Student Health Services and the Resource Pantry on the ground floor—very noteworthy. Also, it's where you pick up your student ID and your mail!
