Why you should attend.

New Student Registration Day is more than just making it official. By deciding that Chatham is the place for you and submitting your deposit, you're taking your real first step into your college education. Here are just some of the perks and benefits you can take advantage of at Registration Day:



Deposited students can select from the earliest registration dates available and makes you eligible for priority class registration. What does that mean for you? It means you'll get the best chance to get your class list and schedule the way you want it. At Registration Day, you will meet with a faculty member in your academic department to help guide which courses you take so you create a schedule that starts you off on the right track.



Students who deposit on or before May 1 have access to priority housing selection and the opportunity to maximize their chances of being where they want to be. On-campus housing is in high demand because it's affordable and really takes advantage of Chatham's great location in Shadyside and Squirrel Hill.



You'll attend New Student Registration Day with a number of your future classmates (and possibly also find your future roommate!). You will have the opportunity to meet others with similar academic interests and we will have information available so that you can start meeting other students with the same extra-curricular interests as you, as well. Plus: you never know what will come from the connections you make!



You may not be starting college right away, but your ID can start working for you right when you get it. With your ID you can get most of the same perks current students get, including free Port Authority transportation all around the Pittsburgh region and other student discounts.

About where you'll call home...

With 39 acres of trees and green space, our Shadyside campus only feels like it's a hundred miles from anywhere. But in fact it's situated in the heart of everything Pittsburgh has to offer. Whether it's shopping, sports, food, culture, concerts, science, technology, nature, or whatever other interests you have, Pittsburgh likely has something for you.

Visit to see some of the superlatives Pittsburgh has earned recently.

P.S. Don't forget that it's all pretty easily accessible with your free Port Authority pass through your Chatham ID!
