Masking is always an option for anyone who chooses to wear a mask for any reason. In addition, masks are recommended in indoor public settings for individuals with underlying medical conditions that make them more vulnerable to severe disease. Individual instructors may decide to require students to wear masks in their classroom and those who do should make that clear on their syllabus and to their students in the classroom. Students are required to comply with the masking requirements established by their instructors.
Masks are available in the Operations and Planning Office in Meyerson Hall, Room G29.
For the 2023-2024 Academic Year, the University will no longer be requiring the COVID-19 and flu immunizations for all students. Visit Wellness at Penn for more information.

The PennComm operations center supports non-English speakers with the use of AT&T’s Language Line, which permits ESL speakers to contact the emergency number and communicate with an emergency dispatcher in over 120 different languages. Additionally, the Language Line can be employed by any UPPD officer in a face-to-face interaction, where the ESL speaker can request to communicate to the Penn Police in his/her own native language via a phone call.
