A Historic Hotel on Penn State University Campus

Penn State health and safety officials are closely monitoring the global outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a new strain of coronavirus and making decisions for our facilities based on evolving federal and state guidance and in an abundance of caution in the efforts underway to stop its spread – globally and in our community.

At this time, The Nittany Lion Inn will be closed for the foreseeable future. These decisions have been made with the health of our employees and guests in mind.
