Fall 2021 move-in schedule announced for on-campus Penn State students

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pennsylvania – Students who plan to live in on-campus residence halls can begin scheduling required relocation dates beginning at noon on Tuesday, July 20, via eLiving, once fall room assignments are posted.

In all residential universities, first-year students will transfer first, followed by returning students. Transfer times for first-year students and returning students vary from one campus to another. Transfer dates for all universities, as well as details on the admission process, what to pack, and other key information and resources, are available at https://arrival.psu.edu/.

At the University Park campus, first-year students will move August 16-20, and returning students will move August 20-22. To accommodate extended guidance in person, the arrival week is extended over several days to provide transfer dates and times throughout the week. This will reduce the daily number of students commuting to each area and help reduce traffic and congestion in parking lots. First year students will be automatically assigned to Extended Orientation Programming based on their arrival date and a detailed Orientation Programming schedule will be emailed. More information about University Park Welcome Week activities can be found at https://welcomeweek.psu.edu.

University dining services will operate to support the on-campus arrival schedule. Information about on-campus food service at University Park can be found at https://foodservices.psu.edu/. Students at Commonwealth Headquarters can go to https://liveon.psu.edu to locate the campus and find information about dining.

Safety Alerts

In line with the latest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, individuals who have not been fully vaccinated are expected to wear face masks inside university premises. At this time, fully vaccinated individuals are not required to wear face masks indoors, and requirements for physical distancing and outdoor persuasion have been lifted for all individuals. The university will continue to provide updates as the CDC and Pennsylvania Department of Health guidelines are updated.

The use of face masks is still required for all individuals while using public transportation, according to CDC guidelines, and in some additional settings such as when visiting health care facilities on campus.

Penn State continues to strongly encourage students to receive the COVID-19 vaccination as soon as they are able, and to upload their vaccination records through myUHS. Students who share proof of vaccination will be eligible for a weekly prize draw, including cash payments, gift cards and signed soccer balls, until August 23.

Upon arriving at the campus

To help reduce any potential spread of COVID-19, family members are reminded to wash their hands regularly and stay home if they are unwell, and roommates should coordinate their arrival times to avoid unnecessary contact between family members. Hand sanitizer stations will be available at all campus locations.
