Welcome To The University Of Pittsburgh

Founded by gung-ho frontiersman cowboys in 1787, the University of Pittsburgh (commonly referred to as 'Pitt') is one of the oldest colleges in the United States; today it enrolls about 29,000 students, a fair few more than in its early days. The campus is full of old famous historical buildings like the Stephen Foster Memorial, the Heinz Memorial Chapel, and the Allegheny Observatory. The school consistently places in the top 25 research universities, and as one of the top 20 public universities in the country. Which is not to say they ignore fun and games: Pitt competes in NCAA Division I sports.

Now, How to Find Apartments In Pittsburgh?

You can find an affordable studio apartment in a large complex, or a smaller place in a simple two-story building. Many of these are downtown. (The Pitt Campus is just east of downtown Pittsburgh, where the river forks at Point State Park.) We of course think the best way to get started on your search is with our apartment guide online. About 44% of undergraduates at the University of Pittsburgh live on campus—that means over half of them are just like you, looking for a great place and good roommates.

Transportation, Recreation

When it comes to getting around, if you don't have any sort of wheels of your own, you can rely on the PAT buses or the 'T', both free when you show your Pitt student I.D. For nightlife in town, take a gander at websites like pghnightlife or pghcitypaper; they’ll keep you in-the-know about what kinds of bars, clubs, and restaurants Pittsburgh has to offer. There’s got to be a reason that National Geographic Traveler picked Pittsburgh as one of the best places to visit. Could it be the sports teams? The Andy Warhol museum? The festivals or golf courses? Lucky you—you don’t only get to visit, you get to become a native, and find out for yourself.
