Fall Welcome Week

WelcomeWeek_secondarylogo (blue&gold) 2020[2]


We are excited to officially welcome you to Pitt! Welcome Week, the traditional time period for all new first-year, transfer, and commuter students to become more familiar with campus, will be held August 16-18. There will be many events, virtual and in-person, to enhance your connection to campus. A schedule of events will be sent out at a later date and we encourage you to select events in the schedule that fit your interests. In addition, there are several required programs for students during Welcome Week that cover important topics about health and safety, diversity and inclusion, and the transition into the college environment.

We have designed the Welcome Week schedule to fit with the Pitt Arrival schedule (August 11-31) so you can start attending events when you arrive. Check out the Printable Schedule below, the Mobile-Friendly Welcome Week Schedule, the Required New Student Events, and our First Year Mentor events in the menu above.
