Setting Up IDs & Email

Obtaining Your PennCard
Your PennCard will be your official University of Pennsylvania identification. You will use it to access many Penn facilities and to take books out of the library.

Registering Your PennKey
PennKey is an identity verification system used to limit access to secure electronic services. Because much of what you do at Penn will require a PennKey password, you should select and register your PennKey as soon as possible.

Establishing Your Email Account for those in the School of Arts and Sciences
Please note: you must have a PennKey and PennKey password to establish an email account.
