College isn’t all lectures, labs and libraries.

At Ursinus, you’ll work hard in the classroom. But your education will also occur on fields, courts and stages, and in studios, residence-hall rooms and campus hangouts. You’ll want to carve out time for one (or three) of our more than 100 clubs and organizations, a theatrical performance or comedy show, or just some R&R in an Adirondack chair.

6 Degrees of Ursinus


While there’s plenty to do on our beautiful 170-acre campus, if you need a little more action, Philadelphia, the nation’s 6th largest city, is only 25 miles away. Even closer, King of Prussia (11 miles) and Phoenixville (6 miles) offer countless dining, entertainment and shopping options.

In additon to our premier arts and athletic facilities, we are also one of the nation’s “Top Green” colleges, with an organic farm and access to a 60-mile wooded trail system right from campus. 

The Schellhase Commons student center opened in late spring 2020 and offers a multipurpose hub where students can grab swag in the bookstore and Starbucks coffee with friends.

A friendly, vibrant campus.
We borrowed a few clips from our students’ phones for this video that highlights
everyday life on the Ursinus campus.
