January Move-In

Students moving in for the Spring 2019 Semester may begin moving in on Saturday, January 12, 2019 at 9am.  There is no early move in for the start of the Spring Semester in January.


Visit your building Information Center to check-in. You may check-in 24 hours/day, 7 days/week.

Moving Carts

A limited amount of moving carts will be available at the Info Center for residents to borrow for one hour while moving in or moving back. It is suggested that you bring a hand truck or similar item to assist you in moving your belongings. If you borrow a cart, please be respectful of the needs of other residents by returning it on time. Charges will be assessed for carts returned late or not returned at all.

Carts will be available for Stouffer residents at Mayer Hall.

Unloading Access to Residences:

Streets will not be posted for unloading for January reopening. Please observe City of Philadelphia and University parking regulations if driving upon your return to campus.

New Residents and Guests: Building Access

If you are a new resident and do not yet have a PennCard, your room assignment and occupancy can be verified at the Information Center of your building. The Information Center staff will verify your access until you obtain a PennCard. PennCards can be obtained at the PennCard Center in the Penn Bookstore at 36th and Walnut Streets. PennCard Center hours are 9 am - 5:00 pm, Monday - Friday.

Anyone who is not a resident of the building, or does not have a valid PennCard at the portal is considered a guest. Residents will be able to sign in guests at the Information Center, following established guest access procedures.

Guests must have a valid form of photo ID to be signed in and accompanied by a building resident host at all times. Guests should expect to present their ID for sign in and for physical verification upon each entry.
