Welcome to Penn State Beaver, a beautiful campus located just 35 miles northwest of Pittsburgh and 15 miles from the Greater Pittsburgh International Airport. With small classes, award-winning faculty, and a staff deeply committed to student success, we provide a truly outstanding college experience.

Penn State Beaver offers the first two years of almost all of Penn State’s 160+ majors which can be completed at Penn State University Park or several other Penn State campuses. 

For students who wish to complete their studies at Beaver, the campus offers baccalaureate degrees in Administration of Justice, Business, Communications, Information Sciences and Technology, and Psychology. In collaboration with Penn State Harrisburg, we offer a Master's Degree in Education in Teaching and Curriculum for individuals with teaching certificates. Some students also choose to begin their college studies in one of our three associate degree programs.  

Our host of successful alumni can attest to the power of a Penn State degree and the richness of their experience at Beaver campus. A Penn State degree will always provide you with a distinct advantage as you move into the job market, whether you're a new graduate or seeking a change in your career. In fact, in a recent Wall Street Journal survey of over 500 corporate recruiters, Penn State graduates were rated #1.

A wide variety of student activities, intramural and varsity sports, and special campus programs will provide you with the opportunity to assume leadership positions and experience the best that Beaver has to offer, both in and out of the classroom.

As Chancellor, I hope your electronic visit to our campus is informative and helpful. Please take the time to learn more about Penn State Beaver and our programs. On behalf of our dedicated faculty and staff, I invite you to join us and become part of a great University with a worldwide reputation.
