Policies

Mail

As a courtesy, faculty, staff, and students can arrange to have their packages sent to the school via the following address:

210 South 34th Street
Philadelphia, PA 19104
Meyerson Hall Room G29

All packages must include recipient’s name as you will be required to show ID when picking up a package.

Personal letters, bills, magazines, and Netflix are not permitted.

We do not alert you when packages arrive. You will need to come to Meyerson room G29 and check the mail log for your package.

Due to limited space, we are unable to store packages for more than one month.

Posting

Policy: PennDesign related flyers can be posted on the designated cork board in the elevator lobby of each floor.  In addition, you may contact the Office of Communications, to have information shown on the lobby screens.

Information specific to studios should be posted within the studio on a pinnable homasote wall.

Pinning or taping to any other surface within the building is prohibited and will result in materials being removed and discarded.

Pets

Pets are not permitted in University buildings with the exception of service dogs.

Bicycles

Policy: All bicycles must be secured to an exterior bike rack as they are not permitted within the building. This is consistent with University and PennDesign policies and is to allow for free ingress/egress for safety and compliance with the U.S. Americans with Disabilities Act.  Failure to comply with this policy will result in having Penn Police remove your bicycle from the premises. 

Registration & U-Lock Purchases

Penn students, faculty and staff can register their bicycles, electronic equipment and other valuables, as well as purchase a U-Lock, online with the University of Pennsylvania Police Department. By registering your property, you will increase the chances of recovery should your property ever be lost or stolen. You will also receive a registration sticker which will help to serve as a visual deterrent.
