The Mansfield University of Pennsylvania Welcomes You! Founded in 1857, Mansfield University combines the best qualities of a small liberal arts college with the resources of a comprehensive public university. We currently enroll about 2000 students who can choose from 40-degree programs and 47 minor programs. Our student-to-faculty ratio is 16:1. Because of our small size, our students receive individual attention and work closely with their professors on research and other projects. Outside of the classroom, students can choose from more than 100 campus clubs and organizations and participate in intramural sports or join our athletic teams.
Our campus is located in the beautiful mountains of north-central Pennsylvania, in an area noted for its safety, quality of life, and numerous recreational opportunities. The region is home to both state and federal parks, the Pine Creek Rail Trail, and the 50-mile long gorge known as the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon. The university is an hour south of the Finger Lakes wine region of upstate New York, and major cities like New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. are all just a bus ride away! We invite students from around the world to become a part of our vibrant and welcoming community. If you are interested in small classes, friendly professors, and individualized attention on a safe campus in a beautiful part of the United States, choose Mansfield!
