SOMEONE MUST REMAIN WITH EACH VEHICLE DURING THE TIME THE VEHICLE IS PARKED IN THE RESERVED AREA.

 


 

What if my desired time slot if full?

Please prepare several move-in choices so we may best accommodate your schedule and ours. 

 


 

My roommates and I are going to move in at the same time. Can we share a time slot?

Time slots will be scheduled for individual residents. If you are intending to move in with your roommate(s), you each should sign up for your own scheduled time slot. This will allow you each an opportunity to park and unload near the building.

 

 


 

I am traveling from far away, what if I am late for my scheduled time slot?

Please allow for traffic or other delays on the road. If you find that you are running late, please call the Pennbrook Management Office at 215.877.2885 x2.
