Printed student, faculty/staff directories discontinued

August 02, 2012

The Penn State Student and Faculty/Staff Directories will no longer be printed, a decision based on sustainability efforts and user feedback from the University community.

Most people now use the University's online directories, accessible through Penn State’s home page, to find contact information for individuals and departments. Therefore, the printed books have been discontinued.

The online directories for individual and department listings are separate databases from the paper directories and will not be affected by the elimination of the books. Information about those directories is posted at

Please note: The Office of University Relations is not responsible for and does not have access to update Penn State's online directories. See for information about updating individual listings and for information about updating department listings.
