Learning Resources

Learning Resources offers opportunities for undergraduate, graduate, and professional students to build and strengthen their study skills and strategies as they engage with Penn coursework and a variety of academic projects. Learning instructors support students through individual consultations and group workshops that often address time/project management, organization, academic reading, research and writing, problem-solving, and exam preparation.

Given the impact of COVID-19 on the Penn community (see COVID-19 Information and Resources), the Learning Resources is offering virtual access to the academic support resources described below. While our physical office is closed, our staff members are available by phone at 215-573-9235 and email to answer questions and assist Penn students in connecting with our services.

Virtual Individual Consultations

Students can schedule 50-minute virtual meetings to discuss their study strategies and approaches to a variety of academic assignments and assessments. Students can call 215-573-9235 to schedule a session and receive a link to a virtual meeting via the BlueJeans platform.

Appointments are available Monday - Friday from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. EDT, depending on instructor availability.
