Accommodations

Back to Campus!

Experience on-campus living at Penn State! Rooms have been reserved for SSR participants in two sets of dormitories on the Penn State campus. Comfortable, air-conditioned, and recently renovated, the rooms boast microwaves, refrigerators, linen service, and a convenient location only minutes away from the scientific session venues. A very limited number of rooms are available for the SSR at a few nearby hotels in State College.

Please note that while AT&T wireless hotspots can be found throughout the campus, internet access in the dorms is limited. Find out more about Penn State visitor wireless here: http://wireless.psu.edu/visitorwireless.html.
