Residence hall schedule changed to accommodate Thanksgiving-week games
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Hours of operation have been extended to accommodate Penn State students who wish to stay in their assigned residence halls for football contests during the week of Thanksgiving break. Residence halls at University Park will close at 10 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 18, to allow for students who wish to attend Penn State’s contest against Indiana on Nov. 17. Similarly, residence halls will open at 3 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 23, ahead of Penn State’s season finale against Wisconsin on Nov. 24.
Students are reminded never to allow strangers to “piggyback” into their residence halls by holding or propping doors. All residents should enter buildings by card-key access. Students who do not wish to travel alone at night are encouraged to use the University’s Police Escort Service by calling 814-865-WALK.
