On-Campus Housing

Punxsutawney Campus Dorms

Living on campus has never been better.

Culinary students at IUP live in two state-of-the-art living facilities in Punxsutawney.

The Living Center at Punxsutawney

This suite-style residential building offers two styles of living units: (1) a four-bedroom suite in which each student has his/her own bedroom, and (2) a two-bedroom suite in which two students share each bedroom.

All Living Center suites have a living room area with couch, armchair, TV stand (TV not provided), end table and coffee table, a microwave and full-size refrigerator, and two bathrooms.

The Fairman Centre

Rooms in the Fairman Centre

Located in a newly renovated historic building in downtown Punxsutawney, the Fairman Centre houses classrooms and a residential living area exclusively for culinary students. High ceilings, tall windows, and stained glass are some of the features from the original building that were preserved in the renovation and incorporated into the residential housing design.

Residential rooms in the Fairman Centre are semi-suites in which two students share one bedroom. All semi-suites have a microwave, compact refridgerator, and one bathroom.

Fairman residents also have use of a resident-only common area with a full-size refridgerator, couches, table and chairs, flat-screen TV, computer, restroom, and vending area.

Residential units in both buildings include the following ammenities:
