Penn State York is a Commonwealth Campus of the Pennsylvania State University. It is located in Spring Garden Township, York County, Pennsylvania and enrolls over 1,500 students.

The York campus was established in 1939 to provide technical education and to allow students to complete basic degree requirements in their home area before transferring to University Park to finish their program. In 1953, the school began to offer its first complete associate degree programs. It moved to its present location in 1956. Today, it remains a suburban commuter-campus and occupies 51 acres (210,000 m2).[1]

Currently, eight four-year degrees can be completed entirely on-site. The most recent new major was added in 2005, when a Community Studies curriculum was put into place.

Athletics

Penn State–York teams participate as a member of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA). The Nittany Lions are a member of the Pennsylvania State University Athletic Conference (PSUAC). Men's sports include baseball, basketball and soccer; while women's sports include basketball and volleyball.
