The Penn State Schuylkill Campus has a history that dates back to the Great Depression when the University adopted guidelines for what would become its Commonwealth Campuses. The town of Pottsville wanted to provide its citizens with a convenient location to achieve postsecondary education and the campus was born. Today, the campus offers a unique experience for Penn State students through its programs, activities, and degrees.
Students have several living options. Penn State Schuylkill offers students on-campus housing, as well as a listing of off-campus housing.
