Arcadia University is a census-designated place[1] located in Cheltenham Township, Montgomery County in the state of Pennsylvania. Its location is just off campus at Arcadia University off Pennsylvania Route 309. As of the 2010 census[2] the population was 595 residents.

At 10,438 people per square mile, Arcadia University is the most densely populated census-designated place in Montgomery County, and 33rd in the entire United States. It is one of only two places in Montgomery County that has over 10,000 people per square mile (the other is Conshohocken). This is attributed to the land area consisting mostly of college dormitories.

Arcadia University is home to National Historic Landmark Grey Towers Castle which serves as the main administration building for Arcadia University.
