When you accept your offer of admission online, you may also choose to pay the $100 on-campus housing deposit. You will receive a confirmation email when you successfully submit your housing contract.
If accepting by mail: Contact Penn State Altoona’s Housing and Food Services Office at 814-949-5713 after mailing your Acceptance Notification and check or money order in order to secure on-campus housing.
Because housing is not guaranteed for first-year students, and is based upon a firstcome, first-served basis, be sure to submit your housing deposit when you accept your offer. If housing is not available when you accept your offer of admission, you may choose to be placed on the housing waitlist.
