Door Access

Each school, department or building has designated Penn employees who can approve requests for changes to a door's schedule or to an individual's access to a particular door or location. These persons are Building Managers.  

If you are not a Building Manager, please send your request for door schedule or individual access changes to the appropriate individual listed for your building on the Facilities Contacts page.


  • If you previously had access to Perelman School of Medicine buildings and recently received a new or renewed PennCard, you must contact PSOM Security to have your access restored. Visit 109 Stellar-Chance Laboratories or call 215.898.0196. You must contact this office to renew your access each time you receive a new PennCard.
  • For leased University spaces in non-University buildings (e.g., 3737 Market, 3711 Market, 3535 Market, etc.), contact your supervisor to be referred to the appropriate party.
  • The PennCard Center cannot add, remove, or verify your access privileges to any campus space.
