Transfer Students:

LiveOn with us for 2022-2023

We're so excited that you've chosen to be part of the Penn State on-campus community. Transferring to a new school can seem overwhelming, so we've made the process of signing up to LiveOn an easy one.

Housing Process

Step 1: Choose Yes for Housing when you accept the Offer of Admission

If you are a transfer student accepting your offer of admission through MyPennState, you can sign up for on-campus living as you go through that process. Choose "Yes" when housing is offered, pay the associated fees, then agree to the Terms, Conditions, and Regulations of the HFS contract. Your space will be secured once you complete the offer acceptance process.

If you already accepted your offer of admission and did not choose "Yes" for housing, add your name to our Waitlist. If/when space is available, you'll receive an HFS Contract offer in eLiving within 1-2 business days.

Step 2: Explore & select your preferences

Once you've secured your space, log on to eLiving to update any of your housing contract preferences such as housing area, roommate, Living Learning Community and Campus Meal Plan. University Park reserves a limited number of space in double rooms, traditional residence halls, for students who are transferring to Penn State from another university. Students requesting housing for fall have until May 15 to indicate these preferences.

Receive your HFS Contract offer after May 15? You can complete your preferences as you go through the contract acceptance process - and, if you change your mind after the deadline, contact us. We may be able to make changes, even after the deadline has passed.

Step 3: Move in & LiveOn
