Perry World House

The Perry World House will be a gathering place for faculty and students from all twelve of Penn’s schools to engage with eminent international scholars and policymakers on pressing global issues of the 21st century.  As a hub for international exchange and activity, the Perry World House will anchor Penn’s global resources on an interdisciplinary campus while creating partnerships abroad.  The heart of the facility is The World Forum space, able to accommodate up to 150 seats for important lectures and special events.  The program includes a classroom with flexible seating from 20 to 49 seats; a flex space with a seating capacity of 50; and on the upper level, a conference room for up to 49 persons.  A total of 14 offices will provide space for a small permanent staff and visiting guests.  A Forecourt punctuates the building entrance on Locust Walk and provides a landscaped outdoor gathering space.  An enhanced Service Court to the north of the building will service multiple facilities in the immediate vicinity.  The $17.8 million project is comprised of 17,393 gross square feet and is expected to be completed in Spring 2016.
