Update For Students Living Off-Campus (for parents)
March 18, 2020
Dear Penn Parents:
I am writing to clarify the message sent this weekend about students who live off-campus. The University is not ordering students who live in private residences to leave, and we regret any confusion about this. We strongly encourage students who live off-campus to return home if they can. For students who decide to stay, please join us in urging them to engage in the social distancing that is now being practiced all over the world to stem the outbreak of this virus. It is essential to sustaining the health and safety of every member of our community.
Thank you, as always, for your partnership in helping us to support the wellbeing of our Penn students.
Wendell Pritchett, Provost
