State College Apartments and State College Houses For Rent When to search

You almost cannot start looking for your next place too soon in State College. Most students move in during the last weeks of August and are hitting the streets securing a place for their group just days later. Students get started searching for housing in early September for the next year around Penn State.

Rent In State College

State College rent isn't cheap, either. Places considered cheap will cost you over $550 per month, even when you grab a few roommates.
Here's a breakdown of average rents per person, per bedroom:

Studio 1BR 2BR 3BR 4BR 5+BR
$798.50 $885.40 $872.63 $599.40 $758.25 $801.00

Life in State College, PA Where to Have Fun

Football! Football! Football! Football! Every game day is a big deal at Penn State. Tailgates are a blast and you'll find lines out the doors at every bar on College or Beaver avenue.

Things To Do

As we've noted, Penn State is a football school. So make sure you catch a game and do some tailgating. But there's plenty else to do in State College while you're at Penn State. After all, it is a large college. So there will be plenty of opportunities for parties, drinking and debauchery.
But aside from the basics, here are a few more things to check out:

  • THON . The largest student run philanthropy is a dance marathon that raises money for pediatric cancer. You'll never forget it.
  • Mifflin Streak . What better way to say goodbye than taking your clothes off and running around?

Dining

To be honest, there isn't a huge bar selection on the Penn State campus. That doesn't mean there isn't anywhere to go, it just means your choices aren't as wide ranging as they are at many other comparably sized schools. That's one drawback to being in a fairly secluded big/little city. House parties are common at every college, but they're a way of life at Penn State.
Some options do remain though of course:

Outdoors

At 600 feet, Mount Nittany isn't too intimidating and it totally makes the hiking experience worthwhile. Scale Mount Nittany in early fall or late summer, when the weather is still good enough for you to really enjoy it.
On those rare days where it's nice outside, you can also take in the Arboretum, a school funded nature preserve that "strives to be a place of beauty and renewal."
