Parking at CHOP’s Philadelphia Campus

Travel Advisories

Please allow for extra travel time to your appointments due to road closures and traffic congestion caused by multiple construction projects around CHOP and Penn, including the full closure of the Wood Center, long-term traffic pattern changes on University Ave. and 34th Street, and more. Please check traffic before you go to see if there are any additional closures or impacts in the area, and check for parking updates.
