Pittenger Hall

Pittenger exterior

Pittenger is part of the PPR trio and adjoined to Palmer via a covered walkway. Pittenger bridges the campus and the town of Swarthmore (The Ville). Just on the other side of the train tracks, Pittenger is a quick walk away from the athletic center, Swarthmore Campus and Community Store, and the shops in the Ville. Residents of PPR and PPRA share a courtyard, complete with a grill that often hosts barbeques.  PPR is also serviced by the campus shuttle, even though the walk to classes is manageable (about 10 minutes). Pittenger houses only sophomores, juniors, and seniors in tile-floor doubles and singles. Most students use the hall bathrooms, which are gender-inclusive. Pittenger and Palmer share a spacious kitchen and a lounge on the first floor of Palmer. The shared kitchen and lounge provide a “homey” environment where students tend to get to know their neighbors and create a strong community.
