Visit Tepper

A visit to our 100-acre campus is an ideal way to learn about what makes our school and city a special place to live and learn. The Tepper School of Business is located in Oakland, a self-proclaimed cultural capital. Museums, international restaurants, cafes, shops and theaters are all within walking distance.

We encourage prospective students and visitors to arrange a campus (and city!) tour to discover one of the nation’s best kept secrets. The city of Pittsburgh has emerged as a crown jewel in the biotechnology, life sciences, green space, technology and healthcare sectors. In fact, Google offices and laboratories are located right on the Carnegie Mellon campus…what other business school do you know where the nation’s hottest company chose to locate its employees and knowledge discovery operations?!

Campus tours, classroom visits and admissions interviews are made by invitation, but we welcome all inquiries. The university and business school pride themselves on a truly authentic collaborative culture, so we encourage visitors to explore our campus, schools and research centers. Students don’t stay “corralled” in B-school while they’re here, so a preview of the full campus access is always recommended.

If you are driving to campus, the East Campus Parking Garage is a pay-as-you-park facility. There are entrances at the intersection of Forbes Avenue and Beeler Street and also on the south side of the garage closest to the University Center and Gesling Stadium. The south side entrance can be accessed on Forbes Avenue just past the intersection with Morewood Avenue. When entering the garage, pull the ticket from the entry station. Park wherever you can find an empty space. Remember to take your ticket with you before exiting the garage. When leaving, go to one of the pay stations located inside the garage (before finding your car) and follow the instructions for payment. Please refer to the campus map in order to identify viable parking options.

Please keep in mind that there are times when visitors who have scheduled an appointment through the Office of Admission may still have difficulty locating a parking space. Here are some alternative options if you cannot find parking on campus:

  • Parking in the visitor lot at the Carnegie Museum of Art and Natural History (one block down Forbes Avenue at Craig Street) is available
  • Metered street parking is available throughout Oakland
  • Several nearby locations include Craig Street, Neville Street, Dithridge Street, Phipps Conservatory and Schenley Park 

NOTE: We do not advise that you park on the unmetered, residential streets near campus. Most of these neighborhood streets require residential parking stickers and you may be ticketed or towed by the City of Pittsburgh Parking Authority. We recommend that you first drop off any student visitors and then look for a parking space. A convenient drop-off location is the turn-around in front of the East Campus Garage and the University Center on Forbes Avenue.
