You may request on-campus housing in Penn State's residence halls, but on-campus housing fills quickly. For more information, visit the Housing website. To add your name to the on-campus housing waitlist, use this Request for On-Campus Housing Form (PDF).
If you are assigned a room in on-campus housing, you must:
- Accept the housing contract.
- Pay the full amount before you move in.
Send your payment to:
Housing Assignment Office

- Get a meningococcal vaccination. This is state law. For more information and the form click here.
- Purchase a meal plan
It is your responsibility to find off-campus housing. Currently, the IECP does not provide homestay placement or other off-campus housing placement services.
For general information and resources, the Office of Off-Campus Living can help you.
