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.

Almost all of the buildings are on the National Historic Register. Numerous buildings that feel like you are going through a museum. Numerous museums within the campus. Most of all everywhere the people were welcoming and friendly.

We were in Pittsburgh for the weekend and took our daughter to walk through the campus. My husband, myself and my daughter were all surprised. It was so nice. Just be prepared to walk and watch out for the hills.

This is a great place to walk around. The chapel and the Cathedral of Learning are great to visit. The food near the school is typical school type food, just venture a little off campus to the better places.

As a grad student at the University of Pittsburgh, I loved walking through and across the boundaries of campus to shop at a locally owned and operated boutique, book store and discover a unique eatery/coffee spot. I loved that the lines were blurred and that Pitt is embedded in the Oakland community. What a great urban educational setting.

Very nice campus with a bunch of nice restaurants and shops within close walking distance. There are a bunch of beautiful houses that have been converted for university use. Also, if you're a film buff, there are a few buildings used in movies like Dark Night Rises, Silence of the Lambs, and I'm sure a bunch others. The Pitt Store... More

We really liked the University of Pittsburgh. The information session was well prepared, and our tour guide was very good. My only complaint is that there is SO much to see that they couldn't possibly get it into a short tour, and if we had realized how much would be missing (like the pool and Pete center), we would have...

Got my Master's Degree from Pitt and it served me well all my life. They have a great reputation, great sports and not to expensive.
