Penn State Mont Alto offers a variety of housing options to meet the needs of a diverse student body. For your convenience, Mont Alto offers many standard features in the residence areas. Read on for details available in each residence hall.
Housing and Food Services strives to provide a safe, inclusive, comfortable, and supportive living environment for all students residing on campus. We offer the option of gender-neutral housing for students who, because of gender identify or gender expression, prefer this option. This allows students who identify as transgender* and gender non-confirming* the ability to choose a roommate of any gender.
Housing and Food Services employs a general maintenance employee to work on daily and routine residence hall problems. Some problems require outside vendors to complete the repairs. Housing and Food Services has contracts with other Penn State departments and vendors to address certain areas, such as cable TV, Ethernet connections, laundry facilities, and card access.
Everyone living in a residence hall room is responsible for the condition of that room at the time of check-out. It is important for roommates to develop a plan together for cleaning and getting the room back to its original move-in state.
Penn State Mont Alto offers on-campus housing for over 440 students in three residence areas—Mont Alto Hall, Penn Gate I, and Penn Gate II. The residence halls are within a short walking distance of the Mill Cafe, the gym, the library, and classroom buildings.
