Regional Campus Housing and Dining

Pittsburgh Campus Housing 

In addition to the 11 residence halls on the Pittsburgh campus, student housing has been expanded to include three hotels to reduce density within buildings and the risk of COVID-19 transmission.  

  • Residence Inn Pittsburgh University Medical Center at 3896 Bigelow Blvd. 
  • Residence Inn Pittsburgh University Place at 3341 Forbes Ave. 
  • Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center at 100 Lytton Ave. 

All three hotels are within a 15-minute walk of the Cathedral of Learning, comparable to many other residence halls including Forbes, Lothrop and Sutherland halls. Each hotel operates in the same way as campus housing, with 24-hour security as well as Resident Assistant and Resident Director staff to provide supervision and support. University shuttle routes will also be updated to provide service to these locations. 

University housing residents may host one visitor that is a resident of anther University housing building at a time in Elevated and Guarded Risk Postures, but not during Shelter in Place. In High Risk Posture, University housing residents are only permitted to be in the University housing building to which they are assigned. Read more about guests  and additional University Housing details in the FAQ on the Panther Central site.
