From East Coast cities north and south, Amtrak is probably the best bet. You will arrive at 30th street station in Philadelphia. From there you can take a 5min taxi to the UPenn campus, enjoy a leisurely 1 mile walk, or take the SEPTA regional train 1 stop from 30th street to the University City station. Smilow TRC is 1 block away.

​The UPenn campus is about 20 minutes from the Philadelphia International Airport by train or taxi. Trains run every 30min from the airport to UPenn (get off at the University City station). Taxi fare is a fixed rate ca. $30.
