Thanks for visiting Mansfield University. We’re located in north central Pennsylvania, a half hour below the New York State border.  Mansfield, Pennsylvania's premier public liberal arts university, was founded in 1857 as Mansfield Classical Seminary. Today the university enrolls 2,700 students in the arts, sciences and professional programs. At the core of all programs is our Creed, with its four core values of character, scholarship, culture, and service.

Living in the Mountaineers Community

Mansfield University is in the middle of somewhere special.  The University is located near thousands of acres of state land, lakes, and spectacular mountain views, including nearby Pine Creek Gorge, which is better known as Pennsylvania's "Grand Canyon."  The Mansfield region offers year-around activities ranging from scenic hiking and biking to skiing, hunting, fishing and boating. The area is also alive with festivals, music, museums and malls.  Our location is not the only thing that makes us special.  It's our commitment to provide students with an environment in which they can find themselves, build on their strengths, and hone leadership skills that will carry them for a lifetime.
