Starting fall 2021, the IUP Punxsutawney campus has shifted to apartment-style housing, which will include apartment-sized ovens, cooktops, and microwaves in all of our on-campus housing. This change will allow students to cook in their apartments
and meet their own dining needs. For this reason, we will no longer be offering on-campus dining.
