Host an Event at Perry World House

As the University of Pennsylvania’s new hub for global engagement, Perry World House is dedicated to advancing interdisciplinary, policy-relevant approaches to the world’s most urgent global affairs challenges.  We provide multiple event spaces for the Penn community to gather and engage.

August 11, 2021 Update

Perry World House is following the University of Pennsylvania’s COVID-19 guidelines. We currently plan on hosting events in accordance with these guidelines. All in-person attendees will be REQUIRED to wear a mask while in Perry World House.  

Please note that our current arrangements are subject to change as guidelines evolve, and other restrictions may be put in place.

We will continue to update our policies as the situation requires. Please take care and stay tuned to this page and our social media channels for any additional changes.

Perry World House especially prioritizes events that align with its inaugural research themes: Global Shifts: Urbanization, Migration, & Demography and The Future of Global Order: Power, Technology, & Governance.  From the unprecedented scale of human displacement to questions surrounding the sustainability of urbanization and the consequences of demographic change, the Global Shifts theme examines three interconnected phenomena that individually and collectively shift the world’s population and transform the way we live. The Global Order theme examines the future of the global order in a world of rising nationalism and the role of emerging technologies in shaping international politics, as well as more traditional challenges such as nuclear proliferation and great power relations. 

There are several spaces available to accommodate your events, conferences, and meetings.
