Penn State Shenango

Penn State Shenango, a 14.5-acre campus in downtown Sharon, Pennsylvania, is Penn State’s only urban campus. It has seven major buildings, including Chadderton Laborary, a robotics lab, McDowell Hall, with a street-level bookstore and learning center, and the Lartz Memorial Library.

The campus serves a diverse population of students, both traditional and adult, who are from Pennsylvania, the United States, and other countries. Students can participate in recreational sports as well as extracurricular clubs and organizations. The campus also has strong ties with the surrounding communities.

Penn State Shenango offers baccalaureate and associate degree programs, as well as the first two years of more than 160 Penn State baccalaureate programs. Students can begin their education at Shenango and move on to the University Park campus or other appropriate Penn State campus in order to complete their degree. Penn State Shenango also offers “blended” degrees in conjunction with the College of Health and Human Development and the online World Campus and, in conjunction with Penn State Harrisburg, a master’s degree program.
