Golf Carts

Golf Carts are reserved for guests with special needs. If you need special services during the weekend, you will be able to request help at the Penn Alumni Weekend Information Tents located at the 34th & Walnut and 36th & Walnut entrances to campus, or tell event staff at individual events. They will contact golf cart or ADA dispatch for you. Due to liability and risk management concerns, passenger golf carts will no longer be allowed to travel on any city sidewalk or street, or after dark. As a result, passenger golf cart service for alumni during Alumni Weekend will be restricted to daylight hours for only Locust Walk between 34th and 40th streets, and the short north/south pedestrian routes of 39th, 37th, and 36th streets between Walnut and Spruce streets. For those needing assistance for parties, we will have special needs golf carts available upon request. For those in need of additional transportation, looping timed shuttle service is available at various places around campus.

Check back for links to download the app, as well as instructions for logging in!

After the MBA Reunion, we will share a link with all of the faculty presentations for anyone who attended the weekend’s events. Please note that not all faculty have given permission to share their presentation.

Please note all hotels will likely sell out before the advertised cut-off date for the group rate, so make your reservations as early as possible. Once our group rate expires, we encourage you to  book on your own, as many hotels will still have limited availability at a different rate. Additionally, you can go to GoGoBot.com to search for the best available rates in the city for that weekend.
