Pitt School of Computing and Information opens new expansion to support collaboration

N. Bellefield space

The University of Pittsburgh’s School of Computing and Information is celebrating the completion of its new space on the 5th floor of 130 N. Bellefield Avenue.

The school’s 10,000-square foot expansion provides communal areas created with flexibility in mind so rooms — including open workspaces, a kitchen, large collaboration spaces and two conference rooms — may be changed to suit the needs of students, faculty and staff.

“Using a space to build our culture of collaboration and partnership is so important for the future of our school,” Dean Bruce Childers said when the project was announced. “It brings energy to us. It brings new ideas.”

The Bellefield initiative reflects the school’s vision and tremendous growth over the past four years and houses Internet-of-Things, a collective network of connected devices, to facilitate communication across SCI’s other spaces, Sennott Square and the Information Science Building.
