Founded in 1956, the Penn State University Ambulance Service is comprised of both students and administrators who
are dedicated to making a positive contribution to the Penn State campus
and its surrounding areas through round-the-clock emergency care, community
outreach, and continuing education opportunities. In addition to ambulance
transport services, UAS provides emergency medical staffing for special
events year-round, such as THON, Nittany Lion Football, the Pennsylvania
Special Olympics, and concerts at the Bryce Jordan Center -- just to name
a few. Acting under the guidance and support of University
Health Services, PSU*EMS represents the oldest and largest collegiate
ambulance service in the country; we strive to to be "there when
you need us", and we are.. Penn State!
