Get Directions


There is no public parking available at Atherton Hall, but parking decks and lots on campus are available for visitor use. The closest on-campus parking option to Atherton Hall is the HUB Parking Deck. It's located along Shortlidge Road, about a block away from Atherton Hall, and it charges an hourly rate.

If you schedule a visit in advance with the Undergraduate Admissions Office, they will provide you with a parking pass for Lot 44 and Stadium West. Complete visitation and parking information is available on their website.

There is also metered parking along College Avenue, the Pugh Street Parking Garage about two blocks away, and a private gated lot along Garner Street a block away in downtown State College.

On Campus



Once on campus, feel free to use the CATABUS service to get around. We recommend the Blue Loop. This free service will connect you with various parts of campus and will cut down on your amount of walking. It stops in front of Atherton Hall on College Avenue and includes stops at Shields Building (where Penn State's Undergraduate Admissions Office is located) and near the Bryce Jordan Center (where visitor parking is abundant).
