Penn State Wilkes-Barre

Penn State Wilkes-Barre offers a world-class education in a small campus environment. Just nine miles from Wilkes-Barre, the campus is located on a scenic estate in northeastern Pennsylvania.

Why choose Penn State Wilkes-Barre? We offer small classes where faculty and staff care about your success, affordable tuition and scholarships, undergraduate research, honors courses, internships, and the opportunity to play intercollegiate sports.

By the way, we’re the only campus which offers a Surveying Engineering degree. If you love math, computing, and the outdoors, then find out how you can have 4-5 job offers before you graduate! Science lovers, our 3.25 million dollar Science Center renovations include updated classrooms and state-of–the–art chemistry labs.

When you’re finished with classes or campus activities, take advantage of thriving cultural, athletic, and recreational activities. Whether you like concerts, theater performances, or movies, local venues like the Mohegan Sun Arena, F.M. Kirby Center, and Movies 14 are only minutes away. So are numerous restaurants, shopping venues like the Arena Hub, Shoppes at Montage, and the Wyoming Valley Mall. Outdoor lovers can hike, ski, and whitewater raft at local parks and recreational sites.

If that’s not enough cheer on your favorite professional sports teams at the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins (Pittsburgh Penguins) and the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Rail Riders (NY Yankees) games. And with a short bus ride you can be in Philadelphia or New York City.
