Shadyside Campus

"As soon as I set foot on campus, I just knew it was for me." It's remarkable how often we hear this from students.

Unparalleled Campus

Our campus is so green and leafy, you'd never guess you were only: Four blocks to trendy Walnut Street's stores and restaurants; two miles to the Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History: five miles to river kayaking and riverside trails; and six miles to PNC Park (Go Pirates!).

Virtual Tour

The best thing is to come see our campus for yourself. The next best is to check out this virtual tour, which will give you the inside scoop on where you'll be spending your time.
