You will want to enter the building through the glass doors marked "University Center Building," on either Hall or Harrison.

Entering from Hall Street

the doors are located just past the entrance to Student Health and Counseling, and before the Parking Garage. Take the elevator to the third floor. You will then want to follow the signs down the hallway to Testing services.

Parking Information

You will not be able to leave the Testing Center once testing has begun, please keep this in mind when deciding where to park. 

The PSU office of Transportation & Parking Services provides detailed information about Hourly and Visitor Parking available on campus. Due to our downtown location, parking can be a challenge.  Be sure to plan ahead, leave plenty of time to get here, and use public transit if possible.

If you plan to use PSU parking options while at Testing Services, we recommend the Fifth Avenue Parking Lot, University Center Parking garage, or Parking Structure 1.
