New to the Pittsburgh area and need help finding your way? Let the Student Guide to Pittsburgh point you in the right direction! Whether you're a freshman, transfer, graduate, or international student—or a Pittsburgh native in an unfamiliar neighborhood, you'll find local resources for everything a college student could need. Find the nearest coffee shop for your late night study sessions, a hotel for parents' weekend, or the perfect take-out restaurant for those days when you just can't eat another cafeteria meal.

The Student Guide to Pittsburgh offers a host of other tools, too. Our Sign Up for Savings Program allows participating businesses to contact you with special money-saving offers, coupons, and e-newsletters and our Event Calendar will keep you up-to-date with the latest happenings. And, as former college students ourselves, we've collaborated to bring you our invaluable "been there, done that" advice on dorm living, apartment hunting, and much more!
