Travel and Lodging

Since due to the COVID-19 situation this year the poster session and talks will take place virtually, there will be no traveling to the conference.


By Air

State College and University Park are served by the University Park Airport (SCE). University Park Airport features connecting service to and from major hubs in Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, and Washington/Dulles. Taxi service is available from the Airport. A list of service providers is available here.

By Bus

Greyhound, Fullington Trailways, and Megabus national bus lines serve State College and University Park.

Greyhound and Fullington Trailways buses arrive at the bus terminal located at 152 N. Atherton Street. This bus terminal is within walking distance to campus, but the Blue Loop campus shuttle is also available from the Walker Building stop (across Atherton Street from the bus terminal) to campus free of charge. The Blue Loop does not provide service on Sundays.

The Megabus arrives at 1665 N. Atherton Street and requires a CATA bus transfer or taxi to get to campus. From the Megabus stop, you must take the V-route to campus. The bus ride to campus is $1.75, and you must have exact fare, as bus drivers do not carry change.


There are many hotels in the State College area that are within walking distance to the Penn State Campus.
