It is known for its research programs, especially in the areas of agricultural sciences and community development, as well as its Big Ten athletics. It is also located in a city known for its history and culture, as it is home to The Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts and the College Heights neighborhood, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.


    The University Park neighborhood is home to Penn State's main campus and is a great place to live. Some off-campus apartment buildings where PSU students rent include Westside Village Apartments (close to a bus stop), State College Downtown Properties (nearby a mall with many stores), and Eastview Terrace Apartments.

    Adjacent to University Park, you will find the Downtown neighborhood. The Downtown neighborhood is home to many restaurants and shops. On top of many of those businesses are apartment buildings. For instance, the Penn Towers, Fairmount East Apartments, or Nicolas Tower Apartments. Apartment buildings like these are not only comfortable, spacious places to live, but they are surrounded by the bustling downtown environment.

    If you prefer a more natural neighborhood, you can consider the Orchard Park neighborhood, named after one of the biggest parks in State College, PA. It is a little further from campus, so it is perfect if you would prefer a more residential or quiet neighborhood.

    On the other side of campus, is the College Heights neighborhood. It is a historic residential neighborhood that is further from campus and houses many landmarks, such as Hillcrest Ave.


    State College, PA, is full of delicious places to eat. If you are in the mood for a burger, try The Field Burger and Tap. For great Mexican food, try the Yallah Taco.

    There are many convenient methods of transportation to help you get around the city of State College or the Penn State campus.

    To get around the city and off-campus, you can ride the Centre Area Transportation Authority (CATA) bus. It will take you to local shopping centers, governmental offices, and apartment complexes. Students can ride fare-free.

    Additionally, if you need to get around campus, you can use the Campus Shuttle. There are many routes that can get you where you need to go. For short trips, you can use a ride-sharing program like Zimride, which is a network open only to Penn State affiliates that allows you to carpool.

    If you would rather bike, you must register your bike with Penn State through its Centre Region Bicycle Registration program.

    For trips further away, you can use a car-sharing service. Fleet is the car-sharing service associated with PSU. You can rent a car 14 days or less, or you can do a long-term reservation for an entire semester or year.

    If you would rather not drive to your far destination, you can take a bus, such as Fullington, Greyhound, or Megabus.

    Additionally, you can also take an Amtrak train. Although the bus or train services are not directly affiliated with Penn State, many students end up using them.


    For PSU students with cars, you will need to purchase a commuter/off-campus permit. These permits are valid during the day on campus (in other words, they are not valid overnight). You can park in the commuter lots and take the shuttle to central campus.

    For a day out in State College, there are many places throughout the city where you can park. There is off-street parking in the three major garages: Beaver, Fraser, and Pugh, which charge $1 per hour. (However, they reduce the rate at night to $0.75 an hour after 6 p.m.)
