I felt like I was in Harry Potter's world walking through this cathedral. We took the walking tour of the nationality classrooms - so neat!

What can I say, if you have to have an 8 am class, having it in a building with that magnificent architecture makes it just a little less annoying!

The University was very well maintained. If was like going to Hogwarts at the Cathedral of Learning. Situated almost besides the Carnegie Museums, you can spend at least a day or more in the area. We were there on a Sunday so it was quiet but peaceful.

When I researched Pittsburgh on Tripadvisor I was surprised to see a university could be so highly recommended.

We had too little time as on a shuttle tour but when in Pitttsburgh again, we'll drive there and spend more time viewing the facilities.

The entire campus of UPMC is gorgeous, with beautiful old architecture from the 1800's until present. The cathedral is its crown jewel. The architecture rivals a Gothic Cathedral in Europe, yet it is dedicated to learning. It stands as a beautiful landmark. The Soldiers & Sailors Monument Building was also amazing, as our keynote speaker spoke there. I sat in... More

I attended a conference on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh including: Soliders and Sailors; Alumni Hall; and the William Pitt Union. The buildings are historic and beautiful. Aside from the buildings, the staff and students involved with the conference were very hospitable!

I attended Pitt and graduated in 2009. I spent the next 4 years working for Pitt. I still live about a mile from the heart of campus. The school provides an excellent education with a variety of majors, minors, sports, activities, and options. Pathfinders and school administrators do a wonderful job explaining opportunities to students. Campus is located just a... More

This was a campus visit for a prospective student. Really loved the architecture. Chatted with some people in the area. Each was very nice. We will be returning.
