Welcome to Old Main -- the heart of Kutztown University!
Built in 1866, Old Main is the oldest and most historic building on campus. In our founding years at the close of the nineteenth century, Old Main was our sole building, providing classroom, administrative and living space.
Today, Old Main is a modern and vibrant educational haven, housing the university's Computer Science, Criminal Justice, Counseling/Human Services, Music, Philosophy, Political Science, Psychology, Social Work and Sport Management departments. You will also find the offices of Grants and Sponsored Projects; Housing, Dining and Residential Services; Public Safety; Social Equity; the Women’s Center; Writing Center; GLBTQ and the Student Support Services.
Old Main has maintained its historic beauty and charm, including its resident, friendly ghost Mary. According to many students, Mary cohabitates peacefully with the 179 women who reside in the residence hall section of Old Main, and Mary can sometimes be seen quietly roaming Old Main's corridors.
