Graduate Student Life

Pitt programs and initiatives support a strong graduate/professional student community.

Where to Live

Pittsburgh's tapestry of neighborhoods, many located within minutes of campus, offer a wide range of options—from the rich cultural amenities of Oakland, where Pitt is located…to quiet city and suburban neighborhoods that are ideal places to raise a family.

Consistent with its efforts to be inclusive and to support a healthy academic-personal life balance, Pitt helps graduate and professional students who are parents to fulfill their family responsibilities while making progress toward their degrees.


Pitt is committed to fostering diversity and inclusion throughout its five campuses—in classrooms, offices, residence halls, laboratories, and every other place where people work, research, and learn.
