Jefferson's 13-acre campus is located in the heart of historic Center City Philadelphia, an East Coast hot spot boasting outdoor cafes along Rittenhouse Square, quaint cobble-stoned streets of Old City abuzz with bistros and boutiques, and premier theatre, music and museums throughout the city’s diverse neighborhoods. Some of our nation’s greatest historical treasures, including the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall and the National Constitution Center, are just a few blocks away.
