A Message from the Vice-Chancellor

Welcome to Miskatonic University. We are one of the leading educational institutions in the world, with a tradition of scholarship, discipline, and rigorous academic standards, as well as an intense curiosity regarding the outside world and its mysteries. Founded in 1790 and situated in Arkham, Massachusetts, on the banks of the Miskatonic River, we are the inheritors and custodians of a rich and storied history, and we impress upon all of our students the importance of a multidisciplinary approach, not just in their studies, but in their lives beyond the walls of Miskatonic. From our respected faculty, each member a leader in their field, to our world-renowned library and its collection of texts both modern and antique, Miskatonic University is a centre for learning without parallel.

As we advance in the 20th Century, it is the goal of Miskatonic University, its faculty, and its students to remain at the forefront of technological advancements while maintaining our connection to our history and the lessons learned therein.

Our motto is “Scientia vincere tenebras”. Knowledge to overcome the darkness. I hope you will join us in this noble pursuit.
