The University of Pittsburgh at Titusville (Pitt-Titusville or UPT) is a state-related college in Titusville, Pennsylvania. It is a two-year campus of the University of Pittsburgh that provides associate degrees and pre-professional tracks with the potential to transfer students to other programs for baccalaureate degrees.

In the fall of 2020, Pitt-Titusville converted its academic programs into the University of Pittsburgh at Titusville Education and Training Hub.

This program incorporates three entities into UPT: Northern Pennsylvania Regional College (NPRC), the university’s Swanson School of Engineering, and Manchester Bidwell Corporation.


The University of Pittsburgh at Titusville was established in 1963 in response to a long-recognized need for higher educational opportunities in the Oil Creek Region. Following a successful fundraising campaign, UPT opened its doors in the fall of 1963 with classes being held in McKinney Hall. Joe M. Ball, a University of Pittsburgh administrator, was named the first president and served in that capacity until his retirement in 1983.

The first entering class numbered some 75 students. McKinney and the adjacent Carriage House were remodeled for classroom, office, and library space. By the end of the 1960s, the campus school had its own residence halls while the 1970s saw the library move into a dedicated facility, Haskell Memorial Library.

The 1980s saw the installation of the school’s second president, Michael Worman, and construction of the 164-bed Spruce Hall dormitory. The 1990s saw the opening of the Barco Center, the initiation of the physical therapist assistant degree program, the first graduation ceremony, and the dedication of the Broadhourst Science Center.

In the 2000s, the Titusville campus offered its first four-year degree program in conjunction with the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, dedicated the Barco-Duratz Plaza, initiated a two-year nursing program, and installed its third president, William A. Shields.
