Commuter Students

Commuter Student Programs

Welcome to the University of Pittsburgh!

As a commuter student, you are among the estimated 800 Pitt undergraduate students who commute to campus.  Pitt is in an urban environment providing easy access to our community and downtown Pittsburgh. We advocate for the growing population of students living off-campus and recognize the unique needs of living in the surrounding neighborhoods of the University.

Our Commuter Student Program is dedicated to the support and engagement of these student populations. Regardless of whether you reside two blocks from campus or two hours, through a variety of resources and support, our office is committed to supporting your student experience as a Pitt Panther.
