PennCard Policy

Please be advised that in response to national and local security concerns, the Division of Public Safety would like to update the University's Security Policy regarding the use of buildings after-hours and the displaying of PennCards. 

The new policy would require all persons (students, staff, and faculty) to prominently display their PennCard identification.

  • between the hours of 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. Monday through Friday and
  • from 10 p.m. on Friday night through 7 a.m. on Monday morning.

Previously the display of PennCard identification was only mandated between the hours of 10  p.m. and 7 a.m. on weekends as well as weekdays. Persons observed by security/police in a campus building that is not open for scheduled public activity between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. Monday through Friday and from 10 p.m. on Friday night through 7 a.m. on Monday morning without a PennCard will be asked to leave the building, and will not be able to re-enter until they can produce valid PennCard identification.

The full text of this proposed policy is available online at www.publicsafety.upenn.edu/policies/POLICY_7_AFTER_HOURS_USE_OF_
BUILDINGS-DISPLAYING_ID_CARDS.htm
from the Division of Public Safety website. More information on the evolution of this security policy is also available at www.upenn.edu/almanac/v48/n33/OR-PennCard.html from the Almanac archives online.

The Division of Public Safety seeks the input of all segments of the Penn community. Please direct your comments to: Maureen Rush via lklerr@publicsafety.upenn.edu.
