Campus is pretty and right in the city

Worth a walk-around if you are in the area but the biggest draw is the Cathedral of Learning. There are a LOT of hills so wear comfy shoes!

What better place to see burgeoning talent in sport, theatrical, and academic venues? We took time to see a Pitt Women's Volleyball game while we were visiting and it was an inexpensive, fun-filled treat! (Pitt won in 3 sets over Miami!)

The campus and nearby vicinity should not be missed on a trip to Pittsburgh. A visit to the nationality rooms at the Cathedral of Learning is a special treat. Other sites within easy walking distance include Heinz Chapel, the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, and Phipps Conservatory. Lots of good dining at nearby Craig Street.

The Cathedral of Learning is unbelievable. I want to go back to do the tour of the International rooms! Looks like Hogwarts.

Love the Cathedral of Learning and all of the nationality rooms! So much to see and do in the area. Spent 4 years on and off while my daughter attended Pitt and she never moved home so we get to continue to enjoy Pittsburgh.

Pitt has a really nice campus just outside of the city of Pittsburgh. You'll find plenty of restaurants on campus as well as nice little shops that students can use while attending school

We took a Hop on hop off bus tour of Pittsburgh that covered 21 stops. It gave a us an overlook of all the interesting place to go back and revisit.

This campus is really nice and in the middle of downtown. It's one of the best universities in the state, and maybe the country. I recommend a stop in, especially if you're considering going to school there.
