The Commonwealth Campus system was created to be the best teaching and learning enterprise in Pennsylvania, representing Penn State education at its finest. The campuses serve the educational needs of local Pennsylvania communities by promoting the development of intellectual and personal excellence in a supportive and inclusive learning community.

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.
