Amazon comes to Penn

Penn’s Division of Business Services has announced that beginning this spring, a new service called Amazon@Penn will open on campus, providing a staffed package pickup point for members of the Penn community to receive and return Amazon orders. The 3,558-square-foot space will be located in 1920 Commons, the University’s largest dining facility. In addition to mobile-enabled, self-service package pickup, it will be the first Amazon pickup location to feature communal workspaces with interactive media pods where students can connect their laptops and mobile devices to TV monitors.

When the doors open at Amazon@Penn, students, faculty, and staff can ship to the pickup location, and Amazon Student and Prime members will receive additional shipping benefits including free same-day delivery for orders placed by noon and free one-day pickup for orders placed by 10 p.m.
