La Salle University is located in the northwestern section of Philadelphia on the edge of Germantown, site of the Revolutionary War battle and one of the oldest historic neighborhoods in the city. The campus covers 130 acres and includes Belfield, a property that once belonged to the American painter Charles Wilson Peale. The University is a few blocks away from the Olney Terminal of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority, a public transportation system that provides direct access to the campus by subway and bus. La Salle is also accessible by automobile from the Pennsylvania Turnpike and Interstate 95. Amtrak provides frequent service to Philadelphia from Boston, Mass., New York, N.Y., Baltimore, Md., and Washington, D.C. The University is less than half an hour from museums, concert halls, restaurants, sporting events, and shopping. The campus is only two hours from the Pocono Mountains or the boardwalk beaches of the New Jersey shore.
