Advanced standing/transfer students should call the Penn State Altoona Housing Office at 814-949-5713 after receiving an offer of admission to discuss the availability of on-campus housing.
If housing is available, Housing and Food Services staff will verify that you accepted your offer of admission and paid the enrollment fee before offering you a housing contract. You must log on to eLiving and accept the housing contract within the required timeframe. You will then need to submit a non-refundable housing fee via check or money order payable to Penn State. You cannot submit the housing fee until the Housing Office offers you a contract and you accept that contract online.
If housing is not available when you accept your offer of admission, you may choose to be placed on the housing waitlist.
