PennAccess Accessibility Info

Access Features of University Buildings and Grounds

PennAccess provides information on the accessible features of the buildings and campus grounds owned or leased by the University.

The University of Pennsylvania is committed to providing a campus that accommodates its diverse community. PennAccess provides access information for campus buildings and public spaces for both the Penn community and visitors. The primary focus is to offer information to those with physical disabilities by providing site plans and a narrative of accessible instruction.  This section of the website can also be used to augment event and program planning.
