University Park

Are you ready to #LiveTheTradition?

Arrival will be here before you know it, and we are looking forward to welcoming you to Penn State University Park! To help you make this transition, we have put together some information on how to prepare for the move.

Penn State Life App

  • Download the Penn State Life mobile app on your phone, then access the Welcome Week Guide. This app is available on the web, Google Play, or the Apple Store*, and is packed with information like events, common questions, hours of operation, campus maps, dining location, and much more. Separate guides will be available for summer and fall arrival.


  • Follow @housingPSU on Twitter to learn about campus Arrival activities and information.
  • Use #PSUarrival to share your Welcome Week experience! Photograph your packed vehicle, decorated room, first campus event, or Penn State apparel. Visit a Penn State landmark or pose at our Nittany Lion photo booth to show us your Penn State pride. We'll also have photo boards available in the commons building for the perfect photo opt! After you post your picture, check out our Tagboard for your picture.
