Penn State Hazleton's prayer room, located in Chestnut Cottage, is a personal and private area that is accessible at all times.
The room was designed to accommodate needs of all denominations with chairs, cushions and a prayer rug available. It can be used by individuals or smaller groups of students.
The décor features themes from nature in a quiet, contemplative space that is free from technology and distraction.
The suggestion to create the prayer room came from the campus Diversity Affairs Committee in considering the religious needs of Penn State Hazleton students, particularly international students, and creating an area set aside for nondenominational religious use.
