Living in Pittsburgh is even easier than going to school in Pittsburgh.

In this unique tapestry of neighborhoods, many within minutes of school, you'll have a plethora of fun choices about where to hang your hat.

From close-in Shadyside and Squirrel Hill, with their appealing mix of retail, food places, and convenient must-haves like 24-hour grocery and well-stocked beer and liquor options, to charming Bloomfield, Friendship, and South Side, it can be daunting to decide which neighborhood makes the most sense for you.

Many students also choose to purchase homes, some by taking advantage of resources from the City of Pittsburgh.

We’ve tried to make the choice a little easier, but with so much to see and do, whatever choice you make will be the right match.
