Student News Readership Program
Access to the News at No Cost
As a Penn State student, you have print and digital access to local and national newspapers at no cost. You can pick up a paper in kiosk locations around campus by swiping your Penn State id+ card to open the kiosk. Many of the newspapers also offer no-cost digital access with a Penn State account.

Where Can I find Newspapers?
Newspapers are available Monday—Friday at kiosk locations throughout University Park campus during the semester. During the summer, distribution is limited. Visit our digital access page for information on how to access news website and apps.
The Student News Readership Program is also available at most Commonwealth Campuses. The available newspapers vary by location.
We want to help students stay informed on local, national, and global news and to gain a broader perspective inside and outside of classrooms. To achieve this goal, we provide access to physical and digital news sources at no-additional-cost to students.
