COLLEGE HOUSE and SANSOM PLACE ACCESS FOR FAMILY MEMBERS: Passes Available at Campus Express

In order to simplify access to your student's College House or Sansom Place, Housing Services offers special Family Weekend passes. These are available online through Campus Express. Your student can easily log into Campus Express at http://campusexpress.upenn.edu/, choose the link to "My Housing," and then the link to "Family Weekend Passes."

Your student may create as many as needed through the website. The passes will also be available from the Information Center of their on-campus residence in the week prior to and on the weekend of Family Weekend. The passes are good from 9:00 am Friday until 5:00 pm Sunday.

These access passes allow relatives to enter the College Houses and Sansom Place without having to sign in at every visit. The resident host, however, must still accompany their guests upon entering the residence.  Guests must display this pass at the guard station, along with photo identification for verification purposes.  Please encourage your student to get your passes via Campus Express—this will eliminate waiting in lines at the Information Center during Family Weekend.
