Student Life

The School of Nursing and the University of Pittsburgh recognize that a student's college experience is more than what happens in the classroom.

The Campus

Located on the Oakland campus of the University of Pittsburgh in Victoria Hall, the School of Nursing sits in the heart of UPMC's medical center directly adjacent to a Level I Trauma Center.

Pitt is an urban campus that encourages you to develop independence and an appreciation of cultural diversity. At the same time we’re a traditional campus with plenty of green spaces, including two nearby parks. Learn more about student life at Pitt.edu.

Student Organizations

At Pitt, Student nursing organizations help support a student's professional, academic, and social needs. The University also offers many ways to get involved through the Office of Student Affairs.

Safety & Security

Student, faculty and staff safety while on campus are critical at The University of Pittsburgh. Students on campus late at night can take advantage of Pitt's SafeRider program.
