About Us

Campus History

The Penn State Beaver Campus is 35 miles from Pittsburgh and is located in the heart of Beaver County. There are several academic buildings, a gymnasium, and an active student union building—all set in a vibrant campus atmosphere. The campus also boasts an 800-seat amphitheatre, which hosts shows, speakers, concerts, and other events.

Living Environment

Harmony Hall is the traditional residence hall on campus. Students can live close to classroom buildings and other campus events, as well as their friends and classmates. Campus living is a great way to be active, meet new friends, and find new interests.

Dining on Campus

Brodhead Bistro is a full-scale food court and is a short walk from Harmony Hall. The Bistro menu includes specialty entrees, pasta, pizza, sandwiches, and more. There are also convenient grab 'n go items for students on the move. It's open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late evening snacks.

Social and Recreational Opportunities

There are several varsity sports teams, as well as intramural programs for team and individual sports. The campus also has many student clubs and organizations, including student government, campus radio, and Lion Ambassadors.
