Housing & Conferences: New Name, More Services

The Department of Housing Services has changed its name to include a new unit, Conference Services. Our new name, "Department of Housing and Conference Services," reflects the expansion of services and the establishment of a "one-stop-shop" for conference customers both internal and external to the University.

Various Penn people came to our dining and housing experts for help planning conferences, meetings, and events. Our partnerships throughout the University and with external professional agencies and organizations made the joining of dining and housing a natural progression of services we were already providing University-wide. The convenience, quality, and versatility offered by this new unit will save time and energy for the Penn community and its partners.

We are located at Sansom Place East, and our phone number is 898-9319. Stay tuned to Almanac for information about Conference Services' open house scheduled Monday, November 23.
