THE BEST HOUSING FOR PITT STUDENTS
UNIVERSITY COMMONS

LIVE WORRY FREE & CLOSE TO CAMPUS

Welcome to University Commons

Welcome to University Commons—a student housing hub in the heart of Pittsburgh’s historic Oakland neighborhood. Consisting of three distinct properties, University Commons at Dawson Street, The Lofts at University Commons, and University Commons at McKee Place, our award-winning community is ready to offer you an exceptional living experience.

Choosing one of our apartments in Oakland, Pittsburgh, PA, as your new home away from home means enjoying our amenities, variety of floor plans, and a location that is near it all. Set close to Forbes Ave and Fifth Ave, with bus stops within walking distance, reaching PITT’s campus, university buildings and the Cathedral of Learning will only take you minutes. This is also true for plenty of retail, restaurants and entertainment destinations nearby like the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Forbes Street Market and all the local food spots. And if you need to venture outside the city, our fast access to nearby highways ensures smooth commutes anywhere you need to be.

Living alone or moving in with roommates is a possibility since our floor plans span from studios to five-bedrooms and have spacious living areas along with private bedrooms to fit your lifestyle needs. Hardwood floors, ample closets, fully equipped kitchens with dishwashers, and cable are some of the features you’ll enjoy inside your renovated home. More than this, a lush courtyard awaits you to relax after school, quarterly resident-oriented events help you meet and connect with fellow neighbors, and the dedicated Walnut Capital Shuttle will get you around the city free of charge! Plus, any mishap and chore can be dealt with in a timely fashion thanks to our on-site maintenance and management team.
