Greater Philadelphia

We’ve got a crush on Philly.

Only twenty minutes from Widener University, Philadelphia is the nation’s sixth largest city, and home to world-class art, culture, sports, entertainment, and history. With accessible regional public transport, you can easily commute from our main campus in Chester to an internship or co-op in Center City, Philadelphia’s thriving commercial and business district, and a great place to launch your career. Need to unwind? Spend the day exploring historic Old City, take in a Phillies game, or hang out on South Street with friends. In Philadelphia, the possibilities are endless.

A world of possibilities in our backyard.
