Earle Hall

EARLE HALL

Earle Hall is the newest residence hall to be built at University Park. Opening for fall 2017, Earle will be located in the northeastern quad of East Housing Area. Earle Hall is an updated version of a traditional residence hall, offering students double occupancy rooms with shared, private bathroom pods. The building will also feature a living room, kitchen, laundry room, study space, and knowledge stations. The building is coed by room (each room is single gender, but may be next to a room of opposite gender.)

Earle Hall

The current East Buildings are named after Pennsylvania governors.  George Howard Earle III was the 29th Governor of PA (1935 to 1939) and was a big supporter of Penn State. He was instrumental in funding ten building projects on campus that increased the physical plant by 50%. Governor Earle also was a supporter of changing the name from “The Pennsylvania State College” to “The Pennsylvania State University.”
