We look forward to welcoming you to Penn State Beaver this fall!
Our faculty and staff have been preparing all summer for your return. Your health and safety, and the health and safety of our entire campus community, are the top priority as we get ready for the new academic year. We would like to share some of the strategies and plans the University has in place to address the coronavirus.
Some of these steps include pre-arrival testing, quarantine strategies, testing of symptomatic and suspected positive individuals, and safety requirements for everyone on campus. Penn State is following CDC guideline and state mandates.
Everyone must wear masks while on campus. The University will be providing cloth masks for every student, faculty, and staff member.
Hand sanitizer stations will be located at convenient spots around campus.
Social distancing will be required on campus. Our classrooms and common areas have been assessed and set up to facilitate this requirement.
Take a look at how our classrooms have been set up to accommodate social distancing.
A number of spaces with computers have been set aside for on-campus students to attend online classes via Zoom. You can get a list of the rooms on the campus COVID resources map. All Zoom-enabled computers are first-come, first-served, and you'll need to bring your own headset.

The Penn State Go app also has lots of information about our campus. One feature of the app is the ability to place mobile orders for our Brodhead Bistro to help facilitate social distancing guidelines. The app can be downloaded from the Apple AppStore and Google Play.
The app also includes a daily symptom checker students are encouraged to complete every morning. See Penn State News for more information.
We are committed to supporting our students and working together to help everyone have a successful 2020-21 school year.
