The Centre Daily Times is a daily newspaper located in State College, Pennsylvania in the United States. It is the hometown newspaper for the Pennsylvania State University, one of the most well-known and largest universities in the country with more than 45,000 students attending the main campus.

The Weekly Times was founded in 1898 and was later renamed The State College Times. In 1934, the paper became a daily, the Centre Daily Times. It was purchased by Knight Ridder in 1979. A Saturday morning edition was added in 1980, and a Sunday edition was launched in 1982. The Centre Daily Times became a morning paper in 1986.
