Return to Campus
Basic Page Sidebar Menu Penn Provost
To return to work on campus, employees and/or HR Analysts must complete the below items. If you have any questions, please contact your Business Administrator or Human Resources Director.
Please remember that all individuals coming to campus for any length of time must complete the PennOpen Pass (see below), wear face coverings, continue to practice social distancing, and stay home if you are feeling sick. For additional information, please visit Workplace Resources for COVID-19 Control.
All faculty, students, and staff coming to campus at any point must complete the PennOpen Pass, the daily symptom tracker designed to reduce the risk of COVID-19 spreading within the Penn community. When you sign-up you can also set your communication preferences, including a daily text reminder to complete your symptom check.
Visitors, vendors, and contractors must also complete the symptom check before arriving on campus. You can direct them here to complete the PennOpen Pass.
Most on-campus buildings will have an individual checking each entrant's Green Pass; if a building does not have someone on-site, employees should send their manager proof of clearance before arriving on campus.
If you will be working on campus more than 50% of your work week, your work contact information must be listed as your campus address. If you work less than 50% of your work week on campus, and your remote work address is outside Philadelphia and was changed to that address as part of the June 1, 2020 Workday change for remote workers, you will not need to make any changes.
This change is not a self-service option in Workday. Your department's Business Administrator is the only one able to change your work address in Workday. Please use this form to submit your work location address change request. You will need to include the following information:
- Penn ID
- Org Number (XXXX)
- Date of Return to Campus
- On-Campus Work Address
HR Analysts: The tip sheet for how to modify an employee's work contact information can be found here. You can also visit the Workday COVID-19 Return to Campus Guide here. This guide was developed to help HR Analysts and individuals paid via Workday identify when a change to work location requires an update to Work Address in Workday.
Before returning to work on campus, employees must complete the following Knowledge Link classes. You can search for the classes individually within Knowledge Link if they are not already assigned to you:
- COVID-19 Training for Penn Essential Employees
- Coronavirus (COVID-19) Safety Information and Resources
- Penn Guide to Returning to Campus Training-EHRS
