One of my children studied here for undergrad and at the graduate level. We are now visiting for another child and I am just as pleased with the many opportunities the university of Pittsburgh provides. Outstanding educational institution.

Great opportunity to see and learn about the many cultures that have made Pittsburgh their home. Amazing architecture that make you feel like you are in a scene from a Harry Potter movie. Fun & interesting for all ages.

We were there on Thnaksgivng Day and nothing was open, but it was well worth a walk around campus, which is really beautiful. The Cathedral of Learning and Heinz Chapel are stunning.

Hi, there are some hotels around campus like Wyndham or Hilton and they are all great places to stay and experience the campus around. The city is very well connected to the campus (barely 5-7 minutes drive or even buses) so... More
