PennCard and Campus Services

Spouses/domestic partners and children of students can obtain a PennCard to access many campus services, visit the PennCard website to learn how to obtain a card.

A spouse/domestic partner PennCard provides access to certain libraries, free Penn transit, and other services on campus.

Family members can also use Penn's recreational facilities, but each family member must each have a valid PennCard. Please note that for the most part, young children's access is restricted and only allowed when accompanied by a parent/guardian. We advise you to discuss with recreation membership staff what will be appropriate for your children before purchasing a PennCard and gym membership.
