Youngstown State University traces its beginnings to a commercial law course offered by the Young Men’s Christian Association in 1908. The YMCA had offered high school level and vocational courses since 1888, but wanted to meet the college-level needs of area residents in a society undergoing rapid industrialization and urbanization.
The Career and Counseling Services office offers a variety of programs and services to all YSU students and alumni. Our staff is here to help you with your overall career planning.
The Office of Housing & Residence Life at Youngstown State University would like to be your home away from home while you are on campus. We believe that living on campus greatly enhances your YSU education and provides a fuller college experience. Whether you are an out-of-town or local student, you will find a residential campus community that fosters academic success and personal growth.
YSU’s Information Technology Services Department provides services to meet technology needs for students, faculty, and staff.
Functional areas include:
Student Health Services: Our campus health clinic, located on the north side of Kilcawley Residence Hall, can assist students in acquiring and maintaining a healthy lifestyle while pursuing academic endeavors.
