The Best Hotel Near Campus for Penn State University Graduation


Ceremony Schedule 

At this time we have concluded entry to the 2021 Commencement Lottery and have begun contacting recipients. 

Guests will be selected until all available rooms are committed in the hotel. With the overwhelming number of request for accommodations during this event weekend, the lottery selection is processed at random and guests will be limited to a maximum of three rooms so that we may work to accommodate as many families as possible. 

Availability Remaining
Nittany Lion Inn: 5%
Penn Stater: 76%
All consecutive room nights  have been exhausted at the Inn, but remain available at the Stater

Due to reduced staffing please allow several weeks for notification of selection to conclude; In order to provide efficiency in the process for all guests waiting for a response guests who receive an e-mail for accommodations must respond within 24 hours to secure their reservation. Any guests that are unable to be accommodated after all guestrooms have been committed will be placed on the waitlist and notified of that status.

Guests calling in for reservations will be directed to submit their contact information to [email protected] as entry onto a secondary waitlist.  

Questions about the lottery, reservation process or status updates should also be directed to [email protected]

Thank you for your interest in sharing this exciting time with us!
