New Bag Policy for PSU Athletic Facilities

If you're planning to cheer on the Nittany Lions this weekend, you may want to think twice about what you bring with you.
PENN STATE, CENTRE COUNTY - If you're planning to cheer on the Nittany Lions this weekend for the first home game at Beaver Stadium, you may want to think twice about what you bring with you.

The following is the new security policy that will be implemented for home games at Beaver Stadium, as well as all other athletic facilities on campus.

One clear, plastic one-gallon bag per person will be permitted for:
  • Medical needs
  • Child care needs
  • General items as needed (see below)
Items that can fit in a pocket should remain in patrons' pockets (i.e. keys, cell phone, wallet, glasses, camera, sunscreen, lip balm, make-up). General items of this nature, including those that don't fit in patrons' pockets, can also be placed in a clear, plastic one-gallon bag.
There are vendors who make commercially available clear, plastic bags equal to a one-gallon bag. Some of these provide carrying straps. These are acceptable as well.
All clear bags will be inspected through the bag and article check stations as in prior years.
Fans are able to bring loose items, including:
  • Coat
  • Wristlet with or without a strap (no larger than 4" x 6" x 1")
  • Blanket
  • Seat cushion that can be rolled and that does not have pockets
  • iPad or other mobile devices
  • Camera (no camera bag)
  • Binoculars
Babies may be brought into athletic venues in a soft baby carrier or a sling. Rigid frame baby and toddler carriers, as well as strollers, are not permitted.
No other bags are permitted including:
  • Backpacks
  • Fanny packs
  • Purses
  • String bags
  • Diaper bags
  • Messenger bags
  • Camera bags
  • Briefcases
  • Roll bags
  • or any other bags
Bags for equipment and computers for those working the event, such as the press, media photographers, etc. are permitted. These bags will be checked and tagged upon entrance at the Employee Entrance or the Media Gate.
