Get Urgent Help


Welcome to University Park

If you're an adult returning to higher education, or beginning college after working or raising a family, we provide a network of support throughout your educational journey. If you need assistance with admission, child care, financial aid, housing, registration, University policies or procedures, help finding a tutor, or a quiet space to study, we can point you in the appropriate direction and connect you with university or community resources.

Each semester, orientation programs and open houses provide new undergraduate students including adult learners, first-year, change of campus and transfer students, a way to connect with one another. You are encouraged to attend these events, participate and learn more about free resources, and dynamic experiences available to all Penn State students.

Single adults, student parents, veterans and married undergraduates all belong and thrive at Penn State.

We have compiled a list of links that might be useful as you navigate campus life.
