    Known as the “Symbol of Life and Spirit of Pittsburgh”, there have been claims that the Early American Room is haunted, as people witnessed furniture moving, candles lighting and strange odors.

    During the fall/ winter exam period, they light up the awesome big fireplaces on the main floor. Try to find a space near one to study!

    Did you know: The Cathedral is the 2nd tallest university building in the world. It is also the second tallest gothic-styled building in the world. Fantastic views of Oakland.

    The white chocolate mochas in the coffee shop on G floor are really good. The regular coffee is awful, but will straighten your hair and keep you very alert!

    If you want an awesome place to study that has a good, quiet atmosphere on a weeknight, head up to the honors college and relax.

    Head to the Nationality Rooms on the first and third floors. There are almost 30 of them and they keep adding more. I like the Armenian Room. What's your favorite?

    The pride of Pitt. Be sure to take a tour of the Nationality Rooms, especially around Christmas when they’re all decorated.
