Where Living and Learning Come Together

Students at Findlay Commons Students outside East Halls

Welcome to Residence Life. Our mission is to provide a safe, comfortable, secure and nurturing living-learning environment that is conducive to students' academic pursuits and personal growth while fostering a sense of community, civic responsibility and an appreciation of diversity.

Each residence hall/apartment area has student and professional staff members who live in the community and are available 24/7 to provide information and resources, offer help and support, plan social and educational activities, and address residents' concerns. Their goal is to assist residents in creating communities that are inclusive, engaging and caring.

There are numerous ways that residents can become active citizens in our halls. Check out our web pages to find out more about these opportunities and our unit.

Please contact me or any other member of the Residence Life staff should you need any assistance. Welcome to the Penn State residence halls! We're glad you're here.
