Penn State York is located in south central Pennsylvania, approximately two hours from Washington, DC or Philadelphia. The campus rests on 51 acres, overlooking the historic city of York. Students and faculty at Penn State York have all of the resources of a major research university at their disposal, but in a small college atmosphere.

Our students receive a world-class education delivered in a small campus setting, and have many opportunities to participate in undergraduate research projects supervised by faculty members.
