Housing, Food Services & Residence Life: University Park

HousingFood Services, and Residence Life at Penn State are a unique trio of units that are dedicated to creating the most comfortable and memorable experience for Penn State students.

Whether it’s in an educational, social, or nutritional way, each area works together to provide an atmosphere that encourages a healthy lifestyle and a safe campus culture. We are the smiling faces organizing campus events, cooking at the dining commons, and cleaning in the residence halls. Our trained staff is fundamental in making campus life a “second home” for our students.

Living on campus is dynamic and fun. We want students to look back on their time in the residence halls as an important part of their college experience. Please feel free to contact us with questions, comments, or to learn more about our units.
