The Jenni House Artist Residency studio is wheelchair accessible and has wheelchair accessible washroom facilities. There is no internet at the Jenni House, but free public access to wifi is available nearby at the Whitehorse Public Library.

Operating since 2015, the Jenni House Artist Residency is organized by the umbrella arts organization, ArtsNet, and is supported by a collective of Yukon-based arts organizations including: the Yukon Arts Centre, Yukon Film Society, Jazz Yukon, Music Yukon, and Kicksled Readings. These groups gratefully acknowledge the support received from Culture Quest and the City of Whitehorse that made the Jenni House Artist Residency possible.
