The meters on campus are easy to use, but if you plan on staying longer the four hours, be advised that you will have to move your car to a different area. The meters will not allow you to just pay more to stay longer, which is super annoying. The campus is lovely, though.

The Cathedral of Learning is a gem! It is the second tallest educational building in the world (the elevator to the 42nd floor is free, just like most of this visit), and houses classrooms reflecting ethnic groups from around the world - the Nationality Rooms. The 18 original ones are on the first floor, and several more are on the... More

Was there just the other day for Ready, Set, PITT an introduction to the university and was very impressed. My daughter has just begun her college search, and this was our first tour but I must say that PITT has set the bar very high. In a great location that appears to have many opportunities because of the city of... More

In visiting this college I was impressed with the students that conducted the information session and tours as well as the college itself. We did a special tour of the engineering building and felt it far surpassed all the other colleges we have already seen. Although this is an urban school it certainly felt like a small community and a... More

Our son was accepted into the University of Pitt for his MPH. We visited the area several times. Awesome campus, great staff and amazing surrounding areas. Excited for my son and the opportunities that lie ahead of him at Pitt.

I have visited the Cathedral of Learning on the campus of University of Pittsburgh several times and each time I visit I discover something new and interesting. It's historical and cultural in all aspects. The nationality rooms should be visited by all. People should take the opportunity and interest in the learning and availability of such concepts.

I have been here a few times now and it's a great place. Sports buildings are newer and the dorms are in great shape. Normally I would prefer a hotel but these are good and the food the have was good and a variety of selection. Close to places to eat or things to do if you want to leave... More

Go inside and check it out, incredible, like medieval Europe, it's an escape from modern times and free to take a look. What a beautiful tower.
