2018-2019 Housing and Dining Rates Remain Constant

The University of Pittsburgh is pleased to announce that we are again maintaining our housing and dining rates for the 2018-2019 school year.

For the fourth time in five years, the University is not increasing dining rates for students. Over the past three years, there have been modest increases of less than 1% for on-campus housing. This year, residence hall rates will not be increasing, and many apartment rates will decrease slightly.

Efforts to maintain costs of living demonstrate Pitt’s commitment to affordability.
