The Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT) is 20.5 miles away from the University of Pittsburgh (25-45 minutes driving time depending on the time of day). There are several options to get to campus from the airport. See this link for general driving directions to the University of Pittsburgh.


If you need to park on campus, you might want to park at the following garages:

Dining Options

There are several dining options throughout the Oakland area. I personally recommend Ali Babba (Middle Eastern), Peter's Pub (American), Fuel and Fuddle (American), or the Spice Island Tea House (Asian). The locations of these restarants are given in this map.
