We are assuming that members of the University community have seen the various messages from President Gutmann and Provost Pritchett throughout March 2020. Those messages can be reviewed here.
We know this is a challenging time and it is heartbreaking for the entire Penn community, including those of you who were working on shows and getting ready to graduate. Platt Ho
use wants to make sure you are each taking care of yourselves. We want to reiterate that Platt House is a resource for you, so please do not hesitate to reach out.
The physical Platt House center is closed for the foreseeable future. Please disregard any building signage to the contrary. That being said, Platt House staff will continue our mission of supporting students during this time. You can reach the full team remotely at platthouse[at]pobox.upenn.edu.

Additionally, upcoming student shows for the Spring 2020 semester have been canceled. As a Penn/PAC/SAC sponsored group, you cannot mount a show during this restricted time.
