Faculty & Staff

Faculty & Staff

Some people think that PITT ARTS only serves to connect Pitt undergraduate, graduate and professional students to Pittsburgh’s vibrant arts and cultural scene, but we also have numerous opportunities for Pitt Faculty and Staff to enjoy what PITT ARTS has to offer.


We have a weekly “Hotlist” e-calendar for faculty and staff to let them know about free and inexpensive arts happenings about town. These members of our community also register to receive the weekly Hotlist by clicking on the “Get Involved” button on our website and noting their status at the University.


PITT ARTS has a program called Cheap Seats, for which we sell to Pitt people greatly reduced tickets to cultural venues.  Several times a year, starting this fall, we will send you a flyer with the current shows for sale, or you can check our Cheap Seats page for the latest offerings


Cheap Seats are available to Pitt students and to Pitt staff and faculty, and they may buy up to four tickets per show (there are some exceptions), and they may even buy tickets for non-Pitt people if the purchasing Pitt person attends.


Most of our Cheap Seats partners offer cheap online sales to the Pitt community via the PITT ARTS website.  Check out the organizations’ listing for links and sometimes necessary promotional codes to buy on-line.  Most promo codes are already included.


NOTE:  Please be prepared to show a valid Pitt ID when you pick up reserved tickets at the Will Call window at the Box Office of the appropriate venue.
