Restricted to students only

Currently the Cathedral is only open to students and not guests and visitors. I still have it 4 stars because it’s a really cool old building and is home to the Nationality rooms.

Great Architecture
Jun 2021
An amazing building on the University of Pittsburgh campus. The Gothic design is very good and the inside of the building is interesting as well.

Monumental
Jul 2021
The Cathedral of Learning is the tallest college building in the United States. It's easily visible from many parts of Pittsburgh. We walked around the outside. Unfortunately, visitors are restricted to peeking into the main room because of covid protocols.

Impressive tower
Jun 2021 • Couples
The cathedral of learning is a very impressive tall tower that dominates the Oakland section of Pittsburgh. I highly recommend a visit to just see the impressive tower alone. 5 stars

Great for a solo tour
Aug 2019 • Solo
I walked around the Cathedral of Learning located in the Pitt campus by myself. That was probably the best decision because I could see everything I wanted without being slowed down. It will make you feel like you are in Hogwarts. I visited in the summer so there were limited students studying. I didn’t get a tour guide to unlock the other rooms designed to reflect different cultures around the world. I did see the classrooms that were open to the public.

Architecturally neat place to visit. Different rooms designed to honor different cultures. Different room are open on different days. You can take an elevator to 36th floor for a great view (free). An optional paid audio tour is available

I was in awe!
Feb 2020
I work at a University in Ontario and was told I should to to the University of Pittsburgh to see the Cathedral of Learning. What an amazing place. The International Rooms were beautiful. Not all of them were accessible due to class schedules but the ones we did see were fantastic. Students were very polite and helpful getting us to where we wanted to go.

Iconic!

I was visiting Pittsburgh and just had to go into the Cathedral Of Learning on the UPitt campus to check it out. The architecture is stunning, reminiscent of Oxford University in the UK. Highly recommend!

Beautiful, and what a tribute to learning!
Jan 2020
As an educator, both at the K-12 and postsecondary levels, I have a deep respect for education and learning. In 2020, however, many do not. So just finding out that something called the "Cathedral of Learning" even exists was a massive boost to my psyche. The building itself is stunning and molded after the cathedrals of Europe, and serves as a functioning part of the University of Pittsburgh. The famed Nationality Rooms are all working classrooms, decorated in the style of the nationality they represent, with informational recordings and signs providing further edification. There are more rooms that we did not get to see because we arrived too late to rent the key needed to access them. Be sure to go to the top of the building to check out the view. We will be back, as much to bask in the glory of what this building represents as anything.
