Check-In Information

To expedite check-in, one member of your family may unload the vehicle while you check-in.

Only Penn State students with proper identification can receive a check-in packet. Packets will not be given to family members or friends. After you have received your room key, you may move your items into your room. Please move your vehicle to a temporary parking lot as soon as it is unloaded.

What to Bring to Check-In

  • Penn State id+ Card or other photo ID
  • Yourself (you may not send a friend or family member to check-in for you) 

What You’ll Receive at Check-In

  • Room key
  • Room check-in sheet
  • Other important information

If you do not have a room assignment for move-in day, go directly to the Housing and Food Services Office, located in Port-Sky Cafe. If the office is closed when you arrive, ask University Police or Residence Life for assistance.
