Plymouth State University is a comprehensive regional university offering a rich, student-focused learning environment with an enrollment of approximately 4,300 undergraduate and more than 2,000 graduate students. The 170-acre campus offers a New England classic look combined with up-to-date facilities including the Lamson Library and Learning Commons, the Boyd Science Center, and Langdon Woods, a LEED certified, environmentally conscious residence hall.
PSU offers nearly 50 undergraduate majors, more than 60 minors, an innovative University Studies program for students still deciding on a major, and 75 graduate degree and certificate programs through the College of Graduate Studies.
We provide an educational experience that you would expect from a small private school; small classes taught by dedicated professors; personal attention from faculty and staff; and outstanding opportunities to lead and to serve.
You won't sit in the back of a huge lecture hall taking notes; you'll take an active role in your learning process.
Most Plymouth Students will tell you the same thing: if you're bored here, you'd better check your pulse. With more than 100 campus clubs and organizations, a student center that never sleeps, a variety of shops and restaurants along Main Street, and an amazing array of outdoor recreational activities beckoning from every direction, the question is never what to do. It's what to do next.

Located in central New Hampshire at the gateway to the White Mountains and the Lakes Region in the quaint town of Plymouth, PSU is within minutes of ski resorts, lakes, and parks and only two hours from Boston.
