Peirce College and the Philadelphia Housing Authority Are Corporate Partners
Peirce College educates adult learners. It's what we do, and we've been doing it for more than 150 years. We know that adult education presents a unique set of challenges, but our more than a century and a half of helping students overcome those challenges makes us the college Philadelphia trusts to help adults go back to school and attain degrees that will help improve their careers. To further that goal, we've partnered with top area employers like the Philadelphia Housing Authority (PHA) to make going back to college as affordable as it is convenient at Peirce.
The PHA is America's fourth-largest public housing authority, and it's been operating since 1937. Today, the PHA owns over 14,000 affordable homes and helps almost 80,000 Philadelphians. And if you're a PHA employee or spouse or dependent of an employee, then PHA and Peirce are ready to help you too. You can enroll at Peirce and enjoy exclusive benefits like a tuition discount!

About the Philadelphia Housing Authority
As the state of Pennsylvania's largest landlord, the Philadelphia Housing Authority opens the door to opportunities for tens of thousands of Philadelphia residents. While the Authority is a public agency, in practice it operates much like a private property management company would. That means it relies on the real estate industry's best practices to help accomplish its goal of leasing and operating affordable housing for city residents who live on limited incomes.
This allows the PHA to offer safe and comfortable housing for many of Philadelphia's residents who are most in need of such homes. Wherever you live in Philadelphia, the PHA is able to provide many great support services to help residents achieve a better quality of life.
