Penn State students currently enjoying a weeklong Thanksgiving holiday break will be able to return to their residence halls in time for Nittany Lions football, if they wish.

Kick-off for the Penn State vs. Michigan State football game has been announced for noon Saturday, Nov. 27. In order to help accommodate those residence hall students who cannot return on Saturday morning before the game, the residence halls at University Park will open at 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 26. Students arriving earlier in the day on Friday will not have access to their residence halls until 5 p.m.

The commons desks in Findlay, Pollock and Redifer will open at 5 p.m. Friday. While the Redifer desk will close at midnight, the commons desks at Findlay and Pollock will remain open throughout the night to accommodate students who may have lost their room key or Penn State ID+ card. Students residing in North and West halls will need to contact the desk staff at Findlay or Pollock for assistance.

The Penn State ID+ Card Office will be open on Friday, Nov. 26 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Saturday from 8 a.m. until noon. There will be no food services available on campus on Friday and limited service available on Saturday. For a complete listing of the food service units that will be open on Saturday, please refer to the food service home page at
