Yes, PCOM offers a process for requesting religious accommodations.

PCOM respects the religious diversity of its students and will attempt to grant absences and make reasonable accommodations whenever possible.

Such modifications must not fundamentally alter curriculum requirements.

If you are requesting religious accommodation and have questions, please contact the Equity and Title IX Manager at:

Housing for students is available on the Philadelphia campus at the Meta Christy House. We also provide off-campus housing information as a courtesy to prospective students:
