Penn State Wilkes-Barre provides the opportunities and rewards of an internationally recognized university in a collaborative educational environment where experienced, dedicated scholar-teachers and staff help students of all ages develop their potential to become productive and responsible citizens. We serve the broader community as an educational, technological, cultural, and economic resource.

At Penn State Wilkes-Barre you earn a world class degree from an internationally recognized university. Many of our students begin a degree in one of over 160 majors before moving to University Park (or another Penn State college location). Others choose to stay with us because they love the convenience of being close to home while earning one of eight bachelor’s or six associate’s degrees. Still others refresh their knowledge a course at a time while working full-time.

Whether you're interested in professional development, an associate’s or bachelor’s degree, our small classes encourage close interaction with professors who are committed to helping you succeed. Combined with student organizations, clubs, athletics, and leadership opportunities on campus and in the community, students experience an educational environment that nurtures the whole person and the places they live and work.

Established in 1916, Penn State Wilkes-Barre is not only the oldest institution of higher education in the Wyoming Valley, it is also one of the most beautiful campuses in the Penn State system. Located approximately nine miles west of the city of Wilkes-Barre, the campus is situated on the former estate of coal baron, John N. Conyngham, II, in Lehman Township.
