Where You Will Live

In summer 2023, SLA participants will all either live on Chatham’s Shadyside Campus in the city of Pittsburgh, or on the Eden Hall Campus in Gibsonia, PA, a 35 minute drive north of the city. We will update all registered participants on the intended program host campus ASAP.

Eden Hall Campus

Eden Hall Campus is Chatham's sustainable college campus and living laboratory, where students explore topics such as sustainable land management, food production and delivery, and energy generation. The campus features renewable energy technologies, high performance green buildings, onsite wastewater treatment, sustainable agriculture farms and gardens, and 200 acres of woodlands with hiking trails.

If the program is hosted at Eden Hall, you will live in the Orchard Hall dorm, which is built to achieve LEED Platinum standards, and eat meals with locally and responsibly sourced ingredients at the Esther Barazzone Center (EBC) dining hall.

Shadyside Campus

Shadyside Campus is so green and leafy as a 32-acre arboretum with 115 different varieties of species, you wouldn’t guess you were only a few blocks from both Walnut Street and Murray/Forbes Avenue stores and restaurants.

If the program is hosted at Shadyside Campus, you will live in a historic dorm building, have daily access to Chatham’s main gym and library, and eat meals at Anderson Dining Hall.
