Welcome to Wilkes University!
Small, historic, concerned, fun. People start businesses, discover cures and invent new technologies when they trust the inner voice pushing them forward. We encourage our students to listen to that voice. As a non-sectarian, independent university, Wilkes operates under the philosophy that worthwhile endeavor occurs when people possess the courage of their convictions.

Every year, Wilkes University becomes the home for students from all over the world. They chose it not only for its exceptional academic offering, but also for its small, intimate classes taught by a dedicated, hands-on faculty who know the needs of international students. Wilkes University is located in a safe and friendly community (Wilkes-Barre has one of the lowest crime rates of any U.S. metropolitan area)—surrounded by some of the most serene woodlands and mountain ranges in the northeastern U.S. And with major cities such as New York, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., just a few hours’ drive away, Wilkes' location allows you to make the most of your time in the United States.
