Went to school there several years ago and recently revisited. Large campus with law and medical schools. Also a world class medical center.

I was very impressed the the University when I went with my daughter for a campus tour and info session. It was pouring rain, but the tours and info sessions were well organized. Pitt ponchos were provided to help keep you dry.

While in Pittsburgh it is worth taking some time to drive and walk thru the University of Pittsburgh. It is only 20 minutes from the City but worth taking time to visit

Where is a good place to stay near campus but would give us a good idea about Pittsburgh as a whole? We are going for a campus visit with our family of 5 and I am wondering where we should stay (downtown, north shore, south works, bakery square)? Thank you.

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
