Individual leasing means peace of mind for you. Your financial responsibility is only for your student’s space unlike many apartments or rental houses where a joint lease is signed.

This is just another reason why The Valley is a PSU student’s best housing option!

These events range from pizza parties to karaoke nights, from resume building classes to gaming tournaments.
Annually, The Valley will have events such as a Welcome Back Party at the beginning of the fall semester, a Casino Night at the beginning of the spring semester, and a large competition among the residents and onsite team, as well as, many holiday events throughout the year. We will also keep our residents connected to events going on at Penn State, in addition to events happening around town so they don’t miss anything! We want your student to succeed, and that’s why we thought of them while designing The Valley as a Living-Learning environment!
Frequently Asked Questions
What does it mean to have an individual lease?

What is included in the rent?
The Valleys rent makes life easy. Your rent includes: utilities (water, sewer, trash pickup), premium cable package, wireless internet, washer & dryer, access to all of The Valleys amenities, and a wonderful team that is there to help you when you need them.
Do you have a roommate matching system?
YES! We do offer a roommate matching system. If you don’t have anyone in mind that you would like to live with, let us match you up with someone. There is a Roommate Matching Sheet that you will fill out to let us know more about what you’re looking for in a roommate. Then, we spend weeks in the summer figuring out the best match for you based on that information. You can always contact The Valley office at a later date with a preferred roommate and we are happy to match you together.
