Our Pittsburgh Connection

Penn State New Kensington is located only 17 miles away from downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  The campus has the appeal of a small college coupled with the name recognition and prestige of a major research university.

We embrace our location and visit the city often as a part of our "Penn State in Pittsburgh" series of events.  For example, the First Year Regional Boat Ride on the Gateway Clipper brings more than 400 freshmen from several Penn State campuses together to enjoy a boat cruise on the three rivers of Pittsburgh.  We coordinate and provide opportunities for our students to experience Pittsburgh's educational, cultural, athletic and fun activities.

With the buzz of city life just a short drive from campus, there is no shortage of things for students to do.  Discover more fun things to do here in Pittsburgh via local websites such as Visit Pittsburgh or Living Pittsburgh.
