Driving Directions

Penn State Brandywine is located in Middletown Township on PA Route 352 just north of the Granite Run Mall, one mile North of U.S. Route 1 (Baltimore Pike) and six miles south of PA Route 3 (West Chester Pike). The campus sits on a 90 acre site about 20 miles west of Philadelphia and four miles west of Media. Interstate 476, the Mid-County Expressway (known locally as the "Blue Route") has made the campus even more accessible from all parts of the Delaware Valley. You can get to the campus from downtown Philadelphia in 30 minutes using I-95 and I-476.

From the Pennsylvania Turnpike (West):
Take the Pennsylvania Turnpike to the Downingtown interchange (Exit 312). After you get off the turnpike, take Route 100 South. Stay on Route 100 South until after you cross Route 30 (Lancaster Pike). After you cross Route 30, get into the left hand lane and follow the signs for 202 South, Wilmington. After getting onto 202 South, take the exit marked Route 3 East, Newtown Square (this is the second exit after you get onto Route 202). Stay on Route 3 until you reach Route 352. Turn right onto 352 South. There is a light at the intersection of Routes 352 and 3.
