North Oakland is closest to the PITT and CMU campuses and the UPMC complex. Just step out your front door, walk a few blocks and you are on campus or at the hospital. Just as easily, you can walk to one of dozens of eateries.
During your down time, enjoy Schenley Park which is full of running trails, tennis courts, picnic spots, a soccer field and a swimming pool. Near the park is Phipps Conservatory- a garden experience like no other. Also check out The Carnegie Museum, where PITT/CMU students can discover art and history for free with their campus id's.
For those who love to be in the middle of the action, this is the place for you!
