Happy holidays from Penn State Behrend!

The college has suspended non-essential operations for the year-end semester break. Offices will reopen on Monday, Jan. 3.

Penn State Behrend has suspended non-essential campus operations for the year-end semester break. Campus buildings have been locked, and temperature and ventilation setbacks are in effect.

Penn State's annual Holiday Heat Reduction Program advances the University's efforts to conserve energy and reduce emissions. The program also generates approximately $225,000 in annual savings.

All campus buildings, except student residences, are expected to be vacant during the semester break, unless they support critical research functions or operations. Faculty members or staff who need to use college facilities during the break are asked to ensure that all exterior doors are locked during and after the use of any campus building.

Police services will be maintained throughout the break. If you are on campus and need assistance, you can reach an officer by calling 814-898-6101. In an emergency, dial 911.

Campus operations will resume at 8 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 3. Spring classes will begin Monday, Jan. 10.
