Live on campus in EARTH House, a residence hall for students interested in food, agriculture, and the natural resource sciences.

Home sweet home.

Live with Penn Staters who share your passion for ag and the environment.

EARTH House is a special living option on the University Park campus for students interested in food, agriculture, and the natural resource sciences.

Location: Runkle Hall, North Halls [map it]

The activities and programs offered at EARTH House reflect residents’ interests in environmental and agricultural issues. Working closely with faculty in the College of Ag Sciences, residents take part in recycling efforts, visit organic farms, attend guest lectures, and participate in a variety of other educational experiences.

EARTH House residents live in North Halls, a vibrant community that houses three SLOs that work collaboratively to provide activities for the whole community. Students live in suites and share a communal kitchen (with limited cooking accessibility), art studio, music practice rooms, seminar rooms, and other common areas with their fellow North Halls residents. (Check out our room rates to compare the cost of living in a suite to the cost of living in a traditional residence hall. First-year students are assigned only to two-bedroom suites with a standard occupancy of four.)
