Slippery Rock University is located in the rolling hills of western Pennsylvania. The 660-acre main campus is less than an hour north of Pittsburgh, one hour south of Erie and 45 minutes east of Youngstown, Ohio. On campus, historic and modern buildings blend a sense of tradition with the latest technologies. Students at SRU don't have to go far to connect with nature. All they need to do is explore the forested areas of campus, hike the Bluebird Trail or climb the ski slope and surprises and educational opportunities await. University property includes five wildlife sanctuaries.
