IUP Site Locations and Regional Campuses


Richard J. Muth, Director, Regional Campuses

IUP operates three regional campuses, one in Punxsutawney, one at Northpointe in Freeport, and one at Pittsburgh East in Wilkins Township. The first regional campus was established in 1962 in Punxsutawney. The following year, the Armstrong campus in Kittanning was opened. In the summer of 2005, the Armstrong campus relocated to a new facility in Freeport and became the Northpointe Regional Campus. The Pittsburgh East Campus, formerly named the Monroeville Center, was established in 1996.

Control of the regional campuses is directly vested with the IUP administration and Council of Trustees. Regional campuses carry full accreditation as integral parts of the undergraduate and graduate programs of IUP.

Programs of Study

All three locations offer courses and programs at the undergraduate level, graduate level, or both. The Punxsutawney campus also hosts certificate and associate programs in Culinary Arts and Baking & Pastry, as well as Clinical Medical Assistant certificate programs. All three locations also host conferences and non-credit workshops.

Faculty advisors and administrators at the regional campuses are available to advise and support students on their instructional programs.


Any prospective student who wishes to attend a regional campus may apply for admission by applying online through the IUP Admissions website, www.iup.edu/admissions.


Northpointe and Punxsutawney students are not required to pay the activity fee or wellness fee. Please see the Finances section of this catalog for further information on other fees payable by all IUP students.

Rules and Regulations Concerning Student Behavior

Students at the regional campuses are subject to the same rules and regulations as students at the Indiana campus. More information is available at www.iup.edu/studentconduct/ and in the Undergraduate or Graduate Catalogs.

Northpointe Regional Campus

The Northpointe Regional Campus is a commuter campus located at Exit 18 off Route 28 with the primary mission of providing local access to higher education opportunities. These greater opportunities for residents foster economic and professional growth for the region. Both credit and noncredit programs are offered at the Northpointe campus, with special emphasis on certificate and associate, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees. Required courses for the first year and, in some majors, the second year are also offered for local IUP students.

Punxsutawney Regional Campus

The focus of the Punxsutawney Regional Campus is to offer academic opportunities needed locally, regionally, and across the commonwealth. Students will be able to complete their first year of classes in most degree programs as well as complete a growing number of certificate and associate degree programs. Online and other technology-offered classes will increase opportunities and the option to increase the time enrolled in classes on the Punxsutawney Campus.

The Punxsutawney Regional Campus has a living center supporting a residential college experience. The campus has a full-service dining commons where meals are served when the university is in session. The same food service contractors serving the Indiana campus operate the Punxsutawney dining program.

IUP Centers and Institutes

Website: https://www.iup.edu/research/centers/

The School of Graduate Studies and Research provides coordinating and support functions for campus-based centers and institutes through the Office of the Associate Dean for Research. Each center or institute is unique in its focus and is created to meet a specifically identified need. Centers and institutes provide an opportunity for faculty members to utilize their expertise through consultation, technical assistance, and research-related activities. Centers and institutes provide excellent opportunities for students to learn, to demonstrate their knowledge and skills, and to become involved in meaningful projects in the community. Centers and institutes strengthen the research and public service missions of the university and, therefore, enhance the quality of education.
