Take a Tour of Our Oakland Student Apartments
A walker’s paradise nestled just off Forbes Avenue, living in our community means nothing will be too far to reach. PITT’s campus is just a short walk away, but if you don’t feel like walking, we have a complimentary shuttle prepared for you. Retail and recreation are also a breeze to get to since there’s a bus stop right across the street to take you to the grocery store or your off-campus job. And if you’d rather relax at home, our well-maintained courtyard and quarterly resident events are there to help you get to know your neighbors.
Your spacious Oakland apartment has everything you need. It’s time to master your cooking skills in the fully equipped kitchens with efficient appliances and granite countertops without worrying about the mess — they come with a dishwasher, too. And if you don’t want to master your cooking skills they’re good for cooking Ramen Noodles too! Moving to the living room, you’ll love the sense of space given by the high ceilings, the touch of style of the hardwood floors, and the convenience of being cable/internet ready. The bedrooms will become your private oasis of tranquility with their large closets and soft carpeting, while select units also feature exposed brick walls and patios/balconies for that extra pinch of style. Adding the on-site laundry facilities and a dedicated management & maintenance team to the mix, all you need to do now is unwind and enjoy a carefree lifestyle knowing that everything is covered.

I’ve been renting with Walnut in South Oakland since August and I’m more than happy to be renewing our lease, as Walnut Capital has extremely competent property management. Maintenance requests are always handled swiftly. A much better college living situation than some of these Oakland “slumlords” who seemingly don’t care about their tenants.- AJ - Google
Although they are a bigger leasing company, I feel as though they treat each client as if they were the only one. I would recommend Walnut Capital to anyone looking for a place to live in Pittsburgh!- Lindsay - Google
They are a very large rental company here in Pittsburgh, but they dont treat you like you would expect. Maintenance is very quick and easy to contact. They are more than just professional, they are friendly and reasonable. They have been great to work with. Thanks!- Andrew - Google
I am a student at Pitt, and have lived in the off campus apartments in South Oakland for the past 2 years. The apartments are beautiful and anytime we have had a problem, maintenance comes either that day or the next morning. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!- Anna - Google
Walnut Capital has been great to work with for my daughter's college apartment. Move-in was smooth and they've been very responsive to the issues that inevitably crop up.- Liz - Google
The management is really responsive, the shuttle service is amazing. Just renewed the lease without any second thoughts!- Vibhor - Google
Spent 2 years living in the University Commons close to Pitt's campus. Had a wonderful experience with the management company, especially their attentiveness to maintenance issues and ability to pay rent online. Made it very convenient for 3 roommates to pay rent separately. Would highly recommend for any Pitt student looking to live off campus.- Max - Google
As a Pitt student living in Oakland, I've been incredibly fortunate to rent from a company that actually takes care of its property. University Commons really stands out among the "college slum" that is Oakland. Walnut Capital has never left me without basic necessities (something many friends of mine sadly cannot say of their Oakland landlords), and they also go out of their way to make living here feel safe and comfortable.- Victoria - Google
