Operational Services

SAS Facilities Crew

The SAS Facilities Crew is ready to provide assistance with special event preparations, internal (within one building) moving or relocations, and general departmental support services.

SAS Warehouse

The SAS Warehouse has been operated as a no-fee furniture exchange depot. We have recently completed a significant downsizing. Consequently, our furniture exchange and storage services will be limited. Storage requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Inventory selection is also reduced.

Any approved storage of departmental furnishings in the warehouse will be for a maximum of 60 days. After that time, we will either dispose of, or offer the furnishings to other departments.

We are available to move or remove old furniture upon request.

In the interests of sustainability we are also available to help find new homes for furniture that can no longer be taken to the warehouse. Contact your Building Administrator or e-mail sasfpo@sas.upenn.edu, if you have furniture in good condition that is no longer needed. We can make known the availability of your furniture throughout SAS in an effort to find someone who can use it.

SAS Vehicle Services

The School of Arts and Sciences currently has two two 7-passenger vehicles available for class trips and research related activities. Our vans are also available for special needs or for moving scientific equipment. Use of vehicles by groups not affiliated with SAS or for events not specifically related to class or research functions are approved on a case-by-case basis (vehicle loan policy). Ruth Kelley is available to provide you with additional information.
