Welcome to Penn State York!

Our campus is located on 51 beautiful hillside acres overlooking the historic city of York in south-central Pennsylvania, a short drive from Baltimore, Maryland and two hours from Washington, D.C. We offer students an exceptional academic experience combined with a safe, personal environment.

Whether you start the first two years of one of Penn State’s 160+ majors with us, or you complete one of our ten baccalaureate or five associate degrees entirely here, at Penn State York you'll have the advantage of smaller classes and one-on-one interaction with faculty.
