Stay Restrictions

We require both Friday and Saturday nights for all home football weekends. Rooms are not intended for resale or transfer without proper notification to and approval from the hotel. If you are making a reservation on someone’s behalf, please include contact details of the person staying in the room. Penn State Hotels may cancel any booking that is transferred or resold inappropriately, and any deposits will be forfeited. 

Room Guarantees

Room reservations for home football weekends will be finalized and confirmed only when they have been guaranteed with a credit card (or when a check payment has been received). Credit card guarantees (or checks) must be received by June 1 to avoid having the room released. No rooms will be held after June 1 without a credit card guarantee or a check payment. 

Cancellations and Deposits

Cancellation requests must be received in writing at least 30 days prior to the planned arrival date.  *Reservations made within the cancellation period are considered to be non-refundable and require a full pre-payment at time of booking.

Season packages are non-refundable unless individual game cancellation requests are made at least 30 days prior to the first game weekend.  Any remaining reservations will be adjusted to reflect individual game pricing levels and eligibility for future season package consideration may be affected.

Non-refundable, advance deposits will be processed beginning 30 days prior to the reservation arrival date for all football weekends. The amount of the deposit is equal to the amount of room and tax for the number of rooms received. No rooms will be held without a deposit. Cancellations made within 30 days of arrival will be subject to a forfeit of the entire deposit.
