College House Security

Trained Public Safety officers are stationed within all residential buildings, providing a physical security presence for students, staff, and visitors. The physical security presence is complemented by state-of-the-art electronic access control, strategically-positioned CCTV cameras and bright lighting. These are all key features of the residential security program for the on-campus Penn community. A valid PennCard is required for entry into residential areas. Once the PennCard holder has swiped into the electronic turnstile, a PennCard Access Code (PAC), unique to each holder, must be entered in order to be permitted access.
