Housing in University Park

Student Services begins compiling housing lists in March and continues to update the lists throughout the spring and summer months, as notices of available properties are received. The lists are maintained as a courtesy and this does not constitute a recommendation of the facilities. In addition to available rental properties, the housing lists include a section for those seeking roommates, as well as information on local realtors and apartment complexes in the area.

As with most major university towns, there is a wide range of housing options, depending on the budget and needs of the student. To assist you in your search, the University maintains extensive housing information on its website.

Those interested in off-campus housing, may secure information from the University’s Housing site. Just click on the “Off-Campus” housing link to search for available housing, a roommate, a property to purchase, or a list of local realtors.

Additional information on properties in the Centre County area is available by searching the “Real Estate” section of The Centre Daily Times. For visitor information and information on local events, don’t forget to check out the Visitor’s Bureau website.
