Please be advised that in response to
national and local security concerns, the Security Services Department
at the Division of Public Safety has updated the University’s
Security Policy regarding the use of buildings after-hours and
the displaying of University identification.
Effective immediately all persons (students,
staff, and faculty) are required to prominently display their
PennCard (or official UPHS 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 (or official UPHS identification) will be asked to
leave the building, and will not be able to re-enter until they
can produce valid University identification.
