What is the direction for students returning to on-campus housing? Can students return to their residence halls to collect their belongings? (UPDATED 5/20)

Students residing in Pennsylvania counties where stay-at-home orders have been eased or are scheduled to be eased, and who attend a campus where restrictions have been relaxed, are being emailed to schedule a move-out appointment. Students may schedule a two-hour time slot to return to their campus between May 11 and June 14. As restrictions are eased elsewhere in Pennsylvania and in other states, the University will provide additional guidance and instructions for move out to students residing in those areas. Residence halls remain closed at all Penn State locations and access is by appointment only. Student key cards will only function during the scheduled appointment date and time. Students who are unable to return to campus may also choose to have their belongings packed up and stored until the start of the fall semester, or shipped to their permanent home address.
