See historic Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania University from the Air!

Just a few miles north of the Bloomsburg Airport! Stop in or fly by for a good view of a nice campus in a very scenic area of the state of PA.

Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania, commonly referred to as Bloomsburg, BU or Bloom, is a comprehensive public university located in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, United States. It is one of the 14 state universities of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE). Bloomsburg University is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, as well as by AACSB, NCATE, ABET, and by many other specialized accrediting agencies.

It was established as Bloomsburg Academy in 1839. In 1856 it was renamed Bloomsburg Literary Institute. The name became Bloomsburg Literary Institute and State Normal School in 1869. In 1916 the state of Pennsylvania took control and named it Bloomsburg State Normal School. The name was changed to Bloomsburg State Teachers College in 1927. In 1960 the name was changed to Bloomsburg State College. The name was changed to the current Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania on July 1, 1983.

Bloomsburg University overlooks the town of Bloomsburg, and is situated a few hundred yards from the community's business district. Geisinger-Bloomsburg Hospital is across the street from a cluster of residence halls. The lower campus consists of seven residence halls, a student services center, campus dining, instructional buildings, library and recreational and social facilities. Upper campus is about a half-mile away, and is connected by shuttle service. It contains athletic facilities, three university-owned student apartment complexes, and a dining and conference facility. It is home to Huskies athletics, including the Nelson Field House; Redman Stadium; fields for soccer, lacrosse and field hockey, baseball and softball; and a tennis center.
