First established in 1866, Kutztown University began as the Keystone Normal School based out of the presently-named Old Main Building and specializing in teacher education so that, in 1928, it became Kutztown State Teachers College. Eventually, the school expanded its programs outside of education to be christened Kutztown State College in 1960 and finally Kutztown University of Pennsylvania in 1983.

Between four undergraduate colleges and graduate studies, Kutztown University now offers programs in the liberal arts and sciences, the visual and performing arts, business, education, and certain graduate studies. Eight intercollegiate men's sports and thirteen women's sports compete within the NCAA Division II and the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC).

Recent years have seen substantial growth in the size and attendance of the university. The Academic Forum building, completed in the Spring of 2007 and the recent construction of a new residence hall, opened in Fall 2008, mark a major expansion project recently undertaken by the university to meet rising attendance numbers.

Kutztown University is a census-designated place in Maxatawny Township just outside of the borough of Kutztown and makes up the main population of the university. As of the 2010 census, the population was 2,918 residents.
