Freshmen Commuter Students--Stay with Us for Orientation Overnight!


Tuesday, August 19-Friday, August 22

Live in Oakland during New and Transfer Student Orientation and have a worry-free week!  By staying in Oakland, students are able to take advantage of late night social programs (don’t need to catch a late bus!) and will have more opportunities to meet other students and get connected to campus.

All participating students will be assigned to rooms at the Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center, located conveniently close to campus on Lytton Avenue.  Students will share their room with one other roommate.

A program fee of $70 is required and includes a hotel room and meal plan for four days and three nights.  Financial assistance options are available—please see the registration link for more details.


Questions?  No problem!  Contact Lynne Miller at or call 412-648-1074.

Transfer Student Retreat
September 12-13, 2014

Being a new transfer student is challenging and it can often be difficult to meet and get to know other students. This overnight retreat provides a quick get-a-way from campus that will help you to meet other transfer students, get more familiar with programs and services at Pitt, and meet the FYE staff and your transfer mentors. More details will be coming soon. There will be a minimal registration fee.


Just for Freshmen Commuter Students

You won't want to miss out on this awesome opportunity! We find that commuters students have a better experience and feel more connected to life at Pitt if they stay on campus during Orientation Week.

Housing will be provided at the Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center, conveniently located close to campus, from Tuesday, August 19-Friday, August 22nd.

A $70 program fee is required and includes a room at the Wyndham for three nights and campus meal plan for the length of the stay.

We want all first year commuter students to participate in this program!  If the program fee prohibits you from participating, financial assistance options will be available.
