Carlow University's main campus is an oasis located in the heart of the bustling Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The neighborhood boasts the largest concentration of cultural, academic, and medical institutions in the area. Our private, 14-acre campus is secluded, yet in the heart of an active community just 10 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh.
Carlow's Oakland campus is also the location of the Campus School for children the ages of 3-13 and the Early Learning Center for children between the ages of 6 weeks to 3 years.
The University Commons
The University Commons project involved the complete renovation of the 82,500 square foot Grace Library Building, turning it into the center of campus life and learning at Carlow University.
