A Short Distance From Five Major Cities

Harrisburg University is ideally located in downtown Harrisburg, a mid-sized town that is also the capital of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. One of the things you love most about going to college on our campus is its proximity to all the places you’ll want to visit while you are a student in the United States. HU offers chaperoned, university sponsored bus excursions to many of these cities to ensure the safety and enjoyment of our international students.
