Transportation & Lodging

Lodging Resources

University Park and the surrounding areas are popular places to visit and stay, especially on event weekends. It is best to research and secure accommodations early, especially for high volume weekends—Move-in and Move-out weekends, football games, Parents & Families Weekend, and Commencement.

Hotels and Bed & Breakfast Accommodations

In addition, there are properties for rent in Centre County including in-home apartments, townhouses, lodges, and single family homes. Please visit the Central Pennsylvania Convention & Visitors Bureau Lodges & Vacation Rental page for more information.
