About UPMUNC

UPMUNC 52

UPMUNC 52 will be held November 8 - 11, 2018 at the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Philadelphia.

A History of Excellence

UPMUNC claims thousands of individuals as alumni who have appreciated the conference's innovation, magnitude, and spirit. With a fifty-one year history, Ivy League charm, and the setting of America's first capital and home to the nation's first diplomat, Benjamin Franklin, UPMUNC epitomizes the rich university-level Model United Nations experience.

A Personalized Experience

The sixteen-member secretariat leads a staff of over 300 Penn students, the core of the UPMUNC experience. With a shared passion for international affairs and a wide range of academic interests and expertise, our trained staff powers UPMUNC with enthusiasm, professionalism, and a down-to-earth attitude. The large staff ensures a high staff to delegate ratio during the conference. Quick responses and a smoothly orchestrated four days are a given.

A Passion for Innovation

At UPMUNC, we aspire to better ourselves through innovation, and this year we will settle for nothing less. In the past, we have added our successful Model UN training sessions, well-attended Summer & Opportunities Fair, and prominent committee speakers. For UPMUNC 52, we are planning on many additions, including further integration of technology in the delegate experience, both before and during conference, more social experiences, and, as always, new and intriguing committees.

UPMUNC Spirit

Beyond academics, world-issues, and skill-building, UPMUNC is guaranteed to bring you fun. Located in the heart of Philadelphia, clubs, restaurants, and shops are at every delegate's fingertips, along with the series of daily events and activities we have in store for you, including Cocktail Night, the Pub Crawl, and our infamous DelegateFest.
