  • East Deck

Permit holders should scan the barcode on their permit at the entrance and exit machines of the East, HUB, and Nittany decks to gain access. They will not need to take a ticket.

While faculty and staff with a Commuter or Evening/Weekend permit will not be able to access these areas, those who wish to gain access have the ability to purchase an upgraded permit at an additional cost by visiting the Transportation Services Office.
