Parking

Parking for students residing in College Housing is provided in designated lots (Orange or Yellow). All residents who wish to park on-campus must purchase a resident parking permit and have it displayed on the car's rearview mirror when parked. Parking tags are available for purchase through the Student Information System. Students may only park in color-coded parking lots that match their parking tag. Parking is strictly enforced and unpaid fines double after 20 days. Grades and transcripts are held until all such financial obligations are satisfied.

Penn College Recycles

The College has a recycling program and all members of the campus community are encouraged to participate. Receptacles are placed throughout campus for convenient disposal of aluminum cans, glass, white and colored paper, and computer paper. Certain departments also coordinate recycling of materials specific to their operations. Remember that participation in this program, developed in coordination with Lycoming County, saves the College money and is beneficial to the environment.

Storage

The College does not supply storage space to residents. Between the fall and spring semesters, you may keep your belongings, at your own risk, in your apartment. During the summer sessions, all belongings must be removed.

Televisions

On-Campus residents will receive a high quality Clear-QAM digital signal on 98 channels, 12 high definition channels, and a large selection of programs.  If you have an older analog television, your television cannot receive the signal without use of a digital-to-analog converter box that has a Clear-QAM tuner.   Make sure that your TV has Clear-QAM tuning capability (a lot of low-cost televisions don't).   More information on Campus Televideo and information on converter boxes can be found at:
