Tips on room reservations 

  • The Penn GSE building at 3700 Walnut has very few rooms available from 2:00 pm to 6:30 pm during the fall and spring semesters. Your requested room is more likely to be available either before 2:00 pm or after 6:30 pm.  
  • At 3440 Market Street, any event with over 30 participants without Penn or Science Center ID requires someone to sign in attendees in the 1st floor lobby. This is the responsibility and at the expense of the sponsor.  
  • If you are planning an event outside of regular business hours, see Information by Building for more information on each building’s operating hours. Contact Facilities if you need to make a special request outside of operating hours.

Rooms for Dissertations

Students looking to book rooms for dissertations or final defenses should fill out the Schedule Oral Proposal Hearing form or Schedule Final Defense form at least 2-3 weeks prior to the desired reservation date. After the scheduling request is officially approved, the Student Records Office will contact you with your room assignment.

Hoteling Room Reservations (Staff & Faculty Only)

Hoteling Room Reservations (Staff & Faculty Only)

GSE has several offices and cubicles available as hoteling space for staff and faculty. You can reserve space up to two weeks in advance using the Robin reservation system. Robin replaced the discontinued Sign-up Genius system in May 2022.

Note: Faculty and staff displaced by the expansion project are automatically enrolled in Robin. Other GSE staff and faculty can request access to Robin by submitting a ticket to IT Help.

Reserve Hoteling Space

Visit the Robin Help Documentation pages for additional guidance.

Checking in to your hoteling space: Prior to arrival, please check in via Robin. Checking in ensures that no one can book the space while you're in it.

You can check in up to two hours prior to your desk reservation start time. If you are unable to check in (i.e., unexpected circumstances arise), the space is automatically released one hour after your reservation start time. This enables others to book the space in the event you are not able to make it in to GSE and/or haven't canceled your reservation.

Accessing your hoteling space: Most hoteling spaces are unlocked, but the following spaces require special entry codes to access.

  • Solomon B17, Solomon B18, and Stiteler 210: Lock boxes (with numeric key combinations that contain an office key) have been installed on the walls outside of these offices. When you reserve these rooms, you will be provided with the lock box combination, allowing you to remove the office key and enter the office. Please return the key to the lock box after opening room. Please close the door to this room upon vacating the space.
  • Solomon lobby office space: The lobby office has a numeric combination key lock. When you reserve this room, you will be provided with the lock combination to permit access. Please close the door to this room upon vacating the space.

Using hoteling room technology: GSE-IT has not yet received computers for all hoteling spaces due to shipping and production delays. As spaces are outfitted with hardware, you will see it listed as “Amenities” upon reserving your desk.

If you have any problems using the software, please open a help request at https://tickets.gse.upenn.edu or contact kimeke@upenn.edu.
