Reporting at PSU
The reporting options give community members the opportunity to share important information regarding observed behavior that raises concerns related to various incidents occurring on or off campus involving PSU community members. The intention for response is to address concerns in a safe, timely, and supportive manner, with the goal of connecting individuals to the resources they need.

Residential Life
Have a question about your housing assignment or meal plan? Need assistance talking to your roommate about a disagreement or conflict? Have a great idea for a program you would like to see take place in your residence hall? Residential Life has live-in staff and a central office that can help with anything that comes up throughout the year. The central office is located on the main level in Speare Administration Building and can be reached at (603) 535-2260.
