Parking: As on many large, urban campuses, parking is challenging and extremely limited. Your basic registration fee will include ONE complimentary parking pass. We strongly encourage carpooling to avoid parking hassles the day of the event. Your parking pass will be given to you the day of the fair.

Arrival: Depending on the location of your booth, employers may drive up to the concourse drop-off or the event floor drop-off where Petersen Events Center union members will help you unload your vehicle and will deliver your materials to your booth while you park. We strongly urge you to drop off your materials prior to parking to avoid walking uphill or downhill with your booth materials.

Lodging and Attractions: The University of Pittsburgh is located in the neighborhood of Oakland, home to many great restaurants and shops. Please click here for more information. Because of the limited amount of parking in Oakland, especially due to anticipated construction activities during the Fall Career Fair, we strongly encourage out-of-town guest to use the shuttle services provided by most of our local hotels.
