Guest Policy

  • A guest is defined as someone who does not normally have access to the building even if the person is affiliated with Wharton or UPenn.
  • A student can have a maximum of two (2) guests at a time in the building, and each guest has to be signed in by the student. Guest policy may be modified for special events at the discretion of Student Life staff.
  • While a valid current student can bring in a maximum of two guests simply by signing them in at the front desk, in case of additional guests, the student will need to submit a guest list to the Wharton 2401 front desk staff at least three (3) business days in advance.
  • If you intend to hold a special event, and invite more than 50 guests at a time, you will need to submit the guest list at least three (3) weeks in advance. The event will require additional security.
  • The group/person hosting the event shall be responsible for the conduct of their guests, for ensuring they adhere to all building policies, and for any damage caused to the facilities as a result of their non-compliance.
  • A guest list can only be submitted by a student with valid access to the building. Additional names cannot be added to the guest list once it has been approved.
  • If you are expecting VIP guests, notify the Office of Student Life at 2401walnut@wharton.upenn.edu at least three weeks in advance. Some VIP guests may require special set-ups and additional security. Charges may apply for these services.
  • Please submit the guest list in the following format:
    • Name of the group/person hosting the event
    • Event name
    • Date and time of event
    • Event location: room name/number(s)
