Pitt Arrival Signs
As you approach Pittsburgh watch for the overhead highway message signs to guide you. There will also be numerous signs on campus with the Pitt Arrival logo on them to direct you.
Unloading Zones & Hours
The parking pass provided to you in your Notice of Housing Assignment email will allow you access to convenient unloading zones for one hour.
Your Unloading Zones: Forbes-Craig Garage or Dithridge Street
Your Unloading Hours
You have been assigned a specific date and time to move-in; which is specified on your Pitt Arrival parking pass. The parking pass can be found as an attachment to the Notice of Housing Assignment which was emailed to you in July. Please print the parking pass and display it prominently on your vehicle’s dashboard when you arrive on campus.
Cart Stations & Wristbands
At the cart station, you will be able to borrow a wheeled cart to help you unload your vehicle. Please have your University of Pittsburgh ID out when you get to the cart station.
Due to high demand, each student may sign out ONE cart. If you have a small handcart or dolly available to you, it is advisable to bring your own. Carts will be provided for a period of one hour free of charge, but as a courtesy to your fellow students, please return your cart immediately after unloading. After two hours a late fee of $20 will be charged to your student account. If you fail to return your cart, your student account will be charged $125 to replace it.
Also at the cart station, your helper will receive a wristband as a security measure. The helper must be present at the cart station with the resident student to receive a wristband in order to gain access to the residence halls. For health and safety, students are allowed one helper for Pitt Arrival 2020.
Your Cart Station Locations: Forbes Craig Apartment Lobby (Enter through the main entrance or the garage entrance)
Please proceed to welcome stations located at each residence hall for additional housing information.
