Penn State Harrisburg, also called The Capital College, is an undergraduate college and graduate school of the Pennsylvania State University and it is located in Lower Swatara Township, 9 miles (15 km) south of Harrisburg. The campus enrolls over 5,000 students and offers two associate, 34 baccalaureate, 24 master's, and three doctoral degrees as well as certificate and certification programs. It was an upper division college (serving only juniors and seniors) from its founding in 1966 until accepting freshman and sophomores in 2004.
The Penn State Eastgate Center, opened in 1991 in downtown Harrisburg, contains state agencies such as the Pennsylvania Securities Commission and Pennsylvania Municipal Retirement System as well as hearing rooms for workers compensation that also occupy space in the building. As of June 1, 2012, all classrooms and administrative personnel previously located in this building were relocated to the Middletown campus.
