House Office

The Gregory Office (107 Van Pelt Manor, P: 215-573-5171; F: 215-573-5303) is staffed by our House Coordinator Theresa Cotter 9AM-5 PM weekdays August-May. While classes are in session, student managers also staff the office after hours and on weekends.  Residents can visit to borrow dvds or boardgames, pick up event tickets, sign up for trips, ask questions and offer ideas about the House, and receive some advice about useful campus resources.  They can also leave messages for the Dean if he is not in his own office.

Gregory House Dean Dr. Christopher Donovan can be found nearby in the Dean's Office (111A Van Pelt Manor, 215-573-4633) during set hours each semester.  However, he is often called away into meetings, so it is advisable to email him to set up appointments in advance. You can stop by the Dean's office for academic advising, referrals to campus resources, discussion about anything happening in Gregory or Penn or just to chat.  He has a collection of travel guides for your perusal, as well as candy and coffee much of the time.

In case of emergency, remember that there is an RA or GA on duty each weeknight and all day on Saturdays and Sundays during the academic year.  They can be paged from the information center (215-898-5202) or by stopping by the front desk of each building.  See our Emergencies and Resources page for more information on resources that can be found after hours.
