Chatham University’s main campus is located within the City of Pittsburgh, but well to the East of the city, away from the hustle and bustle, and tucked away between the Shadyside and Squirrel Hill neighborhoods. The campus offers the best of both worlds: an insular educational experience as well as the ability to partake in a variety of city activities and experiences.
Information about being a student in Pittsburgh is available at the Student Guide to Pittsburgh.
