Located a short distance from the airport, and right on the doorstep of many of the city's best sights, you couldn't be better placed for a stay in town. The range of museums is staggering, catering to lovers of art, history, science, and numerous niche subjects. In fine weather, stroll through the parks, or duck into a café or bar with the locals in the Cultural District.
From Pittsburgh International Airport, it's a mere 25-minute drive along I-376 to the campus. Cleveland, OH is just over two hours away by car, and the Pennsylvania state capital of Harrisburg is three hours away.
Schedule a visit to the campus and you can find out everything from the choice of subjects to funding, housing, student life and much more. Visits are specially focused on either undergraduate or postgraduate study, and there are also transfer information sessions.
Within walking or short driving distances of the campus are a number of excellent hotspots to visit on your trip. The U.S. Steel Tower is the city's tallest building, an iconic feature of the Pittsburgh skyline. Point State Park is a large green space which is ideal for walks and wonderful views across the rivers.
The cultural scene across the city is renowned, including The Carnegie Museums (for history, art, and science), Frick Art and Historical Center, and the Andy Warhol Museum.
