Founded in 1870 as the Central State Normal School, it joined the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education in 1983 and became Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania, commonly abbreviated LHU. It is a state university and enrolls approximately 4,200 students, along with an additional 500 students at the Clearfield Campus. It is located in the town of Lock Haven in central Pennsylvania, roughly thirty miles from the major towns of Williamsport and State College.

Lock Haven's mascot is the Bald Eagle. They participate in the NCAA Division II as well as the PSAC and the ECAC. An exception is their wrestling program, which participates in Division I.

LHU's previous president Craig Dean Willis retired from Lock Haven in 2004 and nearly immediately began an interim presidency at Eastern Michigan University.
