With elements designed for the original Andrew Mellon estate by the renowned Olmsted Brothers, Shadyside Campus on Woodland Road is one of the most idyllic places in the Pittsburgh—a green, leafy oasis right in the middle of the city. Designated an arboretum in 1998 by the American Association of Botanical Gardens and Arboreta (now known as the American Public Garden Association), the 39-acre campus features renovated historic mansions now being used as residence halls, a labyrinth, pond, and 125 different varieties of flora.

Chatham Eastside is a 250,000 square foot building located less than a mile from the University’s historic Woodland Road location and just down the road from Bakery Square, home to Google’s Pittsburgh office. This LEED Silver renovation project used sustainable design practices, recycled materials, and energy-efficient lighting to create an academic and social space within a green environment. Chatham Eastside is home to our School of Health Sciences programs, as well to our programs in Interior Architecture.
