Our mission at Penn Video Network (PVN) campus video services is to provide entertainment and academic support to the University of Pennsylvania community through the use of video.
Residents living on campus in any of the College Houses, Sansom Place, and many GreekNet OFSL Chapter Houses receive PVN programming as part of their on-campus residential housing agreement. A variety of PVN services are available to the general Penn community, as well. Some are free while others require direct billing.
