Welcome to Lock Haven University, where student success is our first priority. 

At The Haven, students work closely with our dedicated and exceptional faculty, staff, and coaches who deliver to them an enriching experience and outstanding curriculum. We also offer real-world exposure through internships, meaningful volunteer work that improves the lives of the local community and the Commonwealth, as well as numerous study abroad choices that put our students’ knowledge into practice. 

Our wide array of research opportunities also help broaden their critical thinking and problem solving skills.

In addition, students are involved with over one hundred clubs and organizations, including varsity and club athletics. 

More than 30,000 Haven alumni from diverse professional and service fields mentor our students and share with them important career advice and real-life perspectives. 

Following graduation, our students are prepared for success and confident in their pursuit of bold career goals and aspirations as a result of the support they received while at LHU. 

The combination of a solid liberal arts education, professional studies, service, and practical experience is the core of our mission and helps our students emerge as knowledgeable, productive, and responsible citizens. 

We invite you to explore our website, plan a visit to our beautiful campus on the banks of the Susquehanna River, and let us help you see how The Haven Advantage can take you further.
