We loved this campus! I've been to many different campuses and college tours, and this tour was one of the best. Students were friendly and informative. Campus is very nice, some really great buildings, nice green areas, lots to do and see.

It's a little tough to figure out where Carnegie Mellon and the city in general stop and the University of Pittsburgh begins. It is definitely an urban campus. The stand-out aspect of the campus is the Cathedral of Learning. That, alone, made our trip worthwhile...More

One of my children studied here for undergrad and at the graduate level. We are now visiting for another child and I am just as pleased with the many opportunities the university of Pittsburgh provides. Outstanding educational institution.

I recently returned from some academic meetings on campus, and aside from the Cathedral of Learning (which is incredible) there isn't really much to recommend about campus, at least in the winter. It seemed like a typical urban university.

Great opportunity to see and learn about the many cultures that have made Pittsburgh their home. Amazing architecture that make you feel like you are in a scene from a Harry Potter movie. Fun & interesting for all ages.
