  • It's always fun to go back and visit Pitt. I graduated awhile back and I enjoyed showing my kids where I went to school. From the architecture to "the O" and Primanti Bros there is a lot to see.  more »
  • The interior is very beautiful to see. Be sure to ride the elevator up as far as you can and you can view the surrounding areas from the highest point in Oakland.  more »
  • Pitt was such a great visit. We really liked where the college is located. It was such a cool campus.  more »

  • Good-looking campus, even though it feels more like part of Oakland. Lots of restaurants nearby!
  • "Follow The Yellow Brick!" Author Jimi Little Fresh1 New Book1 based on overcoming obstacles in Black America! A MUST READ1
  • I went into this experience with the expectation of having a good time at the university of Pittsburgh, instead i ate at a small campus bistro and was harassed and made fun of by people passing by because i was not eating a 100% gluten free meal. I just wish that they knew that my anus and bowel system cannot handle a gluten free diet, then maybe they would have been more understanding people.
  • The motto, "Veritas et Virtus" is a laughable joke. "In vino, veritas" has more going for it.
  • This is a wonderful school; this is from experience. I have had family members attending or are alumni! The school has many things to major in; also one of the most beautiful campuses.

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.
