Penn State's Student Housing Point System
"The proposed changes to the State College borough’s nuisance property ordinance for rental housing — colloquially known as the point system — This ordinance is meant to enforce civil behavior in neighborhoods so residents can live together in harmony, borough council member James Rosenberger said.
The ordinance assigns points to the owner of a property that has received visits from the police due to disturbances... The disturbances, which include noise violations, parking on grass and serving alcohol to minors, each merits one to three points... at 10 points, the owner is notified that the tenants must be evicted, Rosenberger said."
