All through one powerful university you can access from our Bloomsburg, Lock Haven, Mansfield, Clearfield, or Sayre locations in Northeastern and North Central Pennsylvania.

Uncommon opportunities lead to unbelievable experiences

That’s harnessing the power of the combined resources of Bloomsburg, Lock Haven, and Mansfield as Commonwealth University.
