Our Location

Gettysburg College is located between several major metropolitan locations and is mere steps away from the iconic battlefields that shaped our nation’s history. Our location provides both a lively local atmosphere and close proximity to Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Harrisburg, and Philadelphia—just one of many ways that we are able to offer big-city resources while maintaining our small-town charm.

Transportation to and from campus is available to major airports: Baltimore/Washington International Airport (BWI), Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD), and Harrisburg International Airport (MDT). Additionally, transportation to and from campus is available at the following train stations: Harrisburg Amtrak, BWI Amtrak, and Shady Grove (Red Line Metro to Washington, D.C.).
