Center City, Philadelphia Location
In August 2016, Eastern opened classes at a new location in the heart of Center City Philadelphia. The new 5,000-square-foot space at 1601 Market Street has a view overlooking downtown Philadelphia and all of the urban excitement that comes with such a central location.
Easily accessed from the Suburban Station SEPTA Train stop, students and visitors need not even go outside in inclement weather and can enter the building via the train station. On the second floor, Eastern is keeping excellent company with the Philadelphia Convention and Visitor's Bureau as their neighbors and the Shops at Liberty Place across the street.
Students and visitors enter into a welcome lounge complete with high top table and stools; one of the many collaboration areas in the suite. The Learning Lab classroom is the largest space and is designed for active learning with technology and furniture that is adaptable to capitalize on impromptu opportunities for interaction and learning. The showpiece of the space is the Great Room, surrounded by floor-to-ceiling glass on two sides, with moveable furniture that can be reconfigured into many different styles for multi-purpose use and to maximize collaboration.
For Discounted Parking: Please use the PARKWAY Indoor Garage at 1700 Market Street (between S 17th St. and S 18th St.). Students can pick up a validation ticket at the front desk before class. The student/faculty discount consists of:
