  • This is one of those great campus that is nice to walk around. The old buildings are just beautiful- do not miss nationality rooms or the chapel. The Soldiers and Sailors memorial is also right there-...  more »
  • This is a "city" university - located in the town itself. It does not have the character of a campus located in its own part of the town but is very impressive, well laid out and a fun walk around!  more »
  • Check out the Univ. of Pgh's Cathedral of Learning on the first floor where there are classrooms/study rooms of all the various countries.  more »

  • I’m originally from Texas and kinda ended up here as a freshman on accident. All my dream schools rejected me or their financial aid was not pleasant. I have visited TONS of schools from Chicago, LA, NYC, ATL, TX + and all of them were “my dream place” it feels great now saying I go here because this place seriously is the best place in the world to me. I could NOT be happier here. An environment that cares about its students, throws challenges at you IF YOU WANT THEM and above all seriously a stunning and unique place. From the cathedral of learning, to its top notch education. Seriously this place is a hidden gem and I couldn’t be happier here. Don’t be fooled by its “public” status. Yes it is a public school but it gives other schools a run for their money at a seriously affordable price(assuming you get aid which is kinda on your part from academics). I can’t stress enough how perfect this place is to me. Even it’s imperfections like how it lacks grocery stores or sometimes lacks food or “cardiac Hill” all make really good stories and the school never stops improving. Is it prestigious? Not to the extent of other places. But will you have an awesome time AND a competent education that’s world class?? Yes! I sound like I’m advertising but I really feel that way and so do other students. BEST PLACE TO STUDY IN THE US. H2P!
  • Great public school. The housing around the campus is affordable, and the level of education is amazingly good. The school is also well-known for its medical school and it has the long history. If you are considering a medical related career, this is definitely the school that you should consider.
  • An amazing four years spent here! The people are phenomenal, the views of the city are fantastic, and the memories you create will last forever! Hail To Pitt !!!
  • Great University where campus life and city life blend well. Lots to do and a great education.
  • I like Pitts a lot since everything is so convenient and make me comfortable. I pretty soon get used to work and study here and the people around here are nice and friendly.

Where to stay in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh's downtown area is so packed with hotels it is often possible to get top rooms here at bargain prices. Bear in mind that most visitors to Pittsburgh want to stay in this central part of town, so you do need to look for discounts early and book well in advance. If you're visiting universities or other attractions outside of Pittsburgh itself, you can find comfortable airport accommodations just west of the city. Consider also the college neighborhood of Oakland, offering some of the least expensive rooms in Pittsburgh.
