The campus lies on a 160-acre campus just north of downtown Youngstown. Although it is not located near any outstanding geographical features, that has not stopped Youngstown States campus from being noted for its landscaping, which is dissimilar from that of many other urban universities. YSUs geographical center has a park-like atmosphere, featuring a rather-hilly terrain and a variety of trees and plant life, as well as tables and chairs that surround a campus fountain. Most buildings on campus have been built within the last half-century, making them newer than most buildings in downtown Youngstown, where most buildings were constructed before the Great Depression. .
