Football Game Day Information

Welcome to University Park Airport. The airport has implemented procedures to enhance the safety and transportation of our guests traveling to State College on home football weekends. 

There will be a $50 event fee for each aircraft arriving Friday or Saturday which will be parked on our ramp on Saturday. All other fees, such as landing, ramp, etc. also apply. The event fee will be waived for military, air ambulance/medical, law enforcement, charitable flights, federal agencies, and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania agencies. Please note that ramp fees will not be waived for fuel minimums met starting Friday at 7:00 a.m. EST and ending Sunday at 1:30 p.m. EST.

Please note that due to anticipated heavy aircraft traffic, rental or personal vehicles may not be permitted on the apron for safety reasons.  

All pilots and operators are strongly urged to contact the Penn State Aviation Center at 814-865-4042 prior to flying to University Park Airport to check availability for overnight parking or passenger pick-up/drop-off. Parking is not guaranteed for any game. 

Fuel requests must be submitted to the Penn State Aviation Center before the operator leaves the airport or before the start of the event.

Traffic Management 

Traffic Management Initiatives may be required during peak traffic periods or during periods of reduced airport capacity. Pilots should be prepared for potential reroutes, mile-in-trail or altitude restriction, holding, ground delay, or ground stop. 

If possible, plan to arrive early to avoid delays, airspace congestion, and limited parking.  

University Airport Shuttle 

Fullington Trailways will provide a shuttle to and from Beaver Stadium on game day. Round trip is $20 (exact change required) with drop off and pick up at the Bull Barn at the Agricultural Arena on Fox Hollow Road, 200 yards from the stadium. Shuttles to Beaver Stadium will begin three hours before kickoff and continue until game time. Pick-up from the stadium starts at the end of the third quarter and ends approximately 90 minutes after the game.
