Edinboro University is committed to excellence in academics and in every aspect of campus life. A passion for student success, a comprehensive catalog of offerings and a supportive yet challenging academic environment define the EU experience.

Edinboro University is one of Pennsylvania’s most distinguished centers of learning and research. Acclaimed artists, medical professionals, Disney and Pixar animators and leaders in business, education, criminal justice, and many other fields have built the foundations of their success at EU.

The University is distinguished by its genuine dedication to student success, promising the attention, careful advising and state-of-the-art facilities necessary to ensure students achieve their goals and exceed their own expectations.

Founded in 1857 as a private training school for teachers, EU has grown into the northwestern Pennsylvania region’s largest and most comprehensive institution of higher education. With a vibrant campus community, more than 100 areas of academic study, the area’s premier student housing complex, numerous clubs and organizations, nationally renowned services for students with physical disabilities, NCAA athletics, performing arts, a thriving Greek life scene and a 65,000-person alumni network, Edinboro University is committed to providing the highest quality, most affordable undergraduate, graduate and co-curricular education possible.
