Moving In & Moving Out

Move In

All White Course leases have a begin date for when residents can move into the apartment. Residents may check in at the Weston Community Center on the identified lease begin date between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m.

To check in, only the primary lease holder will be able to pick up the key by presenting their Penn State id+ Card.

Early Arrival Requests: Due to current occupancy, cleaning, and/or maintenance of the apartment, requests to arrive earlier than the lease begin date will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Not all early arrival requests will be granted. To submit an early arrival request, please contact the White Course Apartment staff.
