While studying at Moore, many students learn to call Philadelphia home. Though Philadelphia is one of the nation’s oldest cities, it is alive with new energy. Over 80 nearby colleges and universities form one of the largest communities of higher education in the country. Moore’s students share the city with students from Drexel University, University of Pennsylvania, Temple University and many others, allowing them to make friends wherever they go.
Situated on The Parkway in Center City, at the center of Philadelphia’s Parkway Museum District, Moore is at the heart of all that Philadelphia has to offer. World renowned and respected museums surround you. Fairmount Park and its more than 9,000 acres of open space is just steps away. And the Free Library of Philadelphia is right across the street.
Diverse neighborhoods, shops and restaurants of every variety can be found in every direction. From the galleries and boutiques of Old City and Northern Liberties, to the treasures that wait at Fabric Row and the Italian Market, to the endless entertainment on the Avenue of the Arts, many up-and-coming artists have found their place and their inspiration in Philadelphia.
