More than 700 students are enrolled at Beaver, 200 of them living in the Harmony Hall residence hall. Beaver is a 105-acre residential campus located just 40 minutes northwest of Pittsburgh. As one of Penn State's 23 locations throughout the state, Beaver offers an outstanding University education and student experience in a small community setting.

Penn State Beaver is a "2 + 2" campus in that it primarily serves students for the first two years of their education. Most students move on to another Penn State location to complete their degree.

Penn State Beaver offers five baccalaureate degree programs as well as the first two years of more than 160 Penn State majors. In addition, the campus offers an R.N. to B.S. nursing degree completion program in cooperation with Penn State Shenango. 

Our campus employs more than 120 faculty and staff, and we pride ourselves on the close, collegial atmosphere fostered on campus. Students, faculty, and staff enjoy many opportunities to interact on a daily basis.

Careful attention to both the needs of our students and employees and the physical design of the campus have resulted in a pleasant, appealing, and welcoming environment. The campus is oriented around a large, park-like quad and features many smaller plazas and sitting areas. Plentiful walkways loop throughout the campus, providing easy access to all buildings and gathering areas.
