Convenient Online Access to Pay and Benefits Information

U@Penn (, first implemented in May 2002, provides convenient, secure, on-line access to your personal payroll and benefit information. This self-service application reduces "back office" calls and permits more focus on the complex service needs of the faculty and staff.

This fall, direct access to U@Penn is now available through:

• Human Resources Web Site, (see the Information Management section)

• Payroll Web Site,

U@Penn allows faculty, staff, and student employees who receive payments through the University payroll system to securely review their individual pay stubs, benefit information and payroll/personnel data online. The current version of U@Penn is anticipated to be the first step in setting the foundation for an employee portal or electronic gateway that will eventually allow individuals to not only view information but also directly input to the Payroll/Personnel system in order to keep their own personal data such as addresses and contact information accurate and up-to-date.

Currently, the U@Penn site utilizes the current University-wide standard authentication and authorization software, and requires a PennNet ID and password to access the secured environment. (After October 14, U@Penn will require a PennKey and password for access.)

Visit U@Penn anytime Monday through Sunday, except 4 a.m. to 6 a.m.
