The closest airport is the Pittsburgh International Airport. It is usually a 40 minute drive from the airport to campus. Uber and Lyft are both available.

There is a regular Port Authority bus (28X Airport Flyer)  that runs between the airport and campus. The cost is $2.75 one way (cash price) and the ride is about 1 hour. You can pay using cash, or by purchasing a ticket (one time use) or ConnectCard (load multiple rides). More information about Port Authority fares and tickets is available here. The ConnectCard and ticket machine is located inside landside terminal near Door 6, close to Port Authority's 28X bus stop.


Parking passes for the week are available for $65 for the week. You can purchase a parking pass during registration. 



Participants will stay in apartment-style dorms in Ruskin Hall. Participants will have their own apartment that includes a bedroom, kitchen, living area, and bathroom. Dorms are air conditioned and have wifi. 

One standard linen packet will be provided for the week. Linen packets include a fitted sheet, top sheet, thin cotton blanket, pillow, pillow case, washcloth and towel.

No housekeeping is provided during the workshop. Please remember to bring your own toiletries. There is no smoking in the dorms. Lost key fee is $25. You must check out of the dorm by 11 am, returning your key to the guard in your residence hall or Panther Central (3990 Fifth Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15213).
