Safety & Security
Learn how you can protect yourself and others to stay safe in the campus and community. In addition, Penn State encourages reporting misconduct. If you see something, say something. Penn State has different resources to report different types of misconduct. Most reporting options offer the ability to report anonymously.
If you feel like you or someone else is in immediate danger, please contact University Police at 814-863-1111 or call 911.
Victim & Survivor Support & Advocacy
If you or someone you know has experienced sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating or relationship violence, stalking, or sexual exploitation, the University is committed to giving you the help and support you deserve. This page is focused primarily on dating, domestic, or relationship violence concerns given our current climate.
Student Affairs provides a variety of support and advocacy resources. Assistance can include counseling and emotional support as well as help in changing your academic, living, transportation, and/or working situations. Examples of situations with which we can assist include academic distress, financial insecurity, housing or food insecurity, death of an immediate family member, family emergency/crisis, mental health concerns, medical emergency and/or hospitalization, long-term illness, local natural disaster, and unexpected events or challenges.
Basic Needs & Support
Students can face financial challenges or unexpected life events during their college careers. Nationally and at Penn State, food and housing insecurity is an increasing concern for many college students. We are here to help provide the resources you need to thrive and succeed, so you can focus on your goals and making the most of your time at the University.
If you are struggling to afford basic needs, such as food, housing, clothing, or other household items, we are here for you. If you need help — or if you are uncertain about your needs — reach out to one of the many resources available on-campus or in the community.
