Southside Commons and Southside Court are nestled in a quiet corner of State College, providing a peaceful experience for students who want to live a little ways outside the noise of downtown apartments at Penn State. However, Southside is still conveniently located a few minutes walk from the Waupelani Drive CATAbus route, so getting downtown and to campus is still a breeze. Plus, you’re just a few minutes away from groceries, restaurants, and beautiful Orchard Park. And, you’ll enjoy all the safety, security, and maintenance features offered at our other properties.

“The Best Student Housing State College Has to Offer…”

        This is my third year at Blue Course Commons, and I really enjoy living here. The rent is great for a completely furnished apartment. The appliances are all pretty modern, including a washer and dryer in every unit. It’s also a 4-5 minute bus ride to campus, and you get the bus pass for free. The apartments are townhouses so you don’t have to worry about people upstairs making too much noise. I also barely hear any noise from my neighbors even when they have parties. It’s a pretty serene environment. I would highly recommend this place to anyone moving to University Park.”

        I lived [at Blue Course Commons] for two years! It was the most amazing living experience for me since I came to the U.S. The apartment is cleaner and much more comfortable than I [expected]. The manager and staff are friendly and willing to provide best services for residents. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this place for students, especially International students.

- Mohammed bin Ahmed

        I have lived and worked here as a student for the past few years and I can't express how much I've enjoyed my time here! From working hard with the staff, to relaxing in my own room, or even hanging out at some of the events we've thrown, I've truly enjoyed every moment here. The townhouses are roomy and quiet and I highly recommend any Penn State student to #LiveWithin!”
