Living on Campus


What are you looking for in your home away from home? A chance to be independent and responsible? To connect with people who share your interests – and meet others who offer a new perspective? To be active and engaged? To have some fun along the way? That's all part of student life at PennWest Edinboro. You'll find Edinboro is a welcoming place on a picturesque campus. A place where you can feel comfortable and grow as a person and citizen of the world.

Be at the Heart of It All

When you live on campus, you'll have access to everything the University and the surrounding community has to offer. Not only does Edinboro have plenty of on-campus resources like numerous dining options, a state-of-the-art fitness center, student health center and the Pogue Student Center, but it also sits right in the center of the lakeside community of Edinboro, Pa.

On-Campus Housing and Dining Options, Just for You


Choose from suite-style housing in The Highlands, the University's newest housing facilities, or opt for the Towers, our traditional residence halls. Some are pet-friendly; others are dedicated to specific Living and Learning Communities. In all cases, our residence halls are supervised by professional and student staff, who work to create a comfortable and vibrant environment and make sure you feel right at home.


Whether you have a hankering for sushi or are craving some home-cooked comfort food, PennWest Edinboro serves up a variety of delicious dining options. Try our farm-to-table options using produce grown on campus. Or check out our online recipes and prepare some Edinboro favorites in your kitchen at home.
