The University requires visitors to campus and to University-sponsored events and gatherings to be fully vaccinated and to comply with mask requirements.
Before arriving on campus, visitors must complete a PennOpen Campus pre-screening on the day they visit. They must present their Green Pass on request.
- Access information on how PennOpen Campus works.
The University requests that visitors not come physically to campus if they feel ill, have been exposed to a case of COVID-19, or if they are not fully vaccinated.
Visitors should be reminded that they impact 37,000 Penn students, faculty, staff, and postdocs, as well as the surrounding West Philadelphia community.
Visitors are required to abide by guidance provided by the City of Philadelphia, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the Centers for Disease and Prevention Control, as well as public health guidance provided by the University. Public health guidance continues to evolve.
Individual schools and centers manage their visitor experience and may establish more strict policies regarding mask use, physical distancing, and eating/drinking by visitors inside their campus buildings.
Schools and centers may arrange for those who are regularly on campus – such as visiting students, visiting scholars, and other non-Penn individuals – to get PennKey credentials. In those cases, these individuals may enroll in PennOpen Pass to check for daily symptoms and exposure.
