Meeting and Event Space
Campus meeting and events space availability has been an ongoing topic
of conversation this summer as the current Faculty Club readies to transition
out of Skinner Hall, and the Inn at Penn prepares for opening.
Understandably, there are concerns about how to satisfy existing event
and meeting needs that had been previously met by space at Skinner as well
as other venues (such as Perelman Quad) that are presently out of service.
Campus Services is hosting information meetings for Penn events planners
to address these challenges. Staff from Conference and Guest Services at
Penn, the "new" Faculty Club, the Inn at Penn, and the Sheraton
University City will be available to discuss your interests and questions.
These meetings will offer an opportunity to:
- get help finding the "right" space for your event
- hear about how Conference and Guest Services can help you secure events
space and services.
- meet staff from both the Inn at Penn and the Sheraton
- hear about the Faculty Club in its new iteration in the Inn at Penn
