Living & studying in Pittsburgh

Located in the Oakland neighborhood, the University of Pittsburgh's (Pitt) campus is three miles from downtown Pittsburgh. The city is home to professional sports teams, such as the Steelers and the Penguins and dozens of unique cultural centers, like the Andy Warhol Museum and Phipps Conservatory & Botanical Gardens. Pitt students get free admission to these and other select museums throughout the school year. The city of Pittsburgh is bordered by three rivers, so many students enjoy kayaking, sailing and fishing. City buses stop every 10 to 15 minutes on campus, and students can ride public transportation into the city for free with school ID. Pitt students are notorious for their avid support at sporting events and the Pittsburgh Panthers sports teams compete in the NCAA Division I Atlantic Coast Conference.
