Prepare to Hail to Pitt! Housing

After you’ve mailed your Ship2Pitt boxes and finish packing your last few light essentials, be sure to review these helpful on-campus housing reminders: 

  • Verify your housing assignment, meal plan, and mail information! 
  • Pets are NOT permitted in the residence halls or apartments. Not even for a visit! 
  • Print your parking pass and remember to bring it with you! 
  • If you notice after you move in that you have a non-emergency maintenance concern (i.e. you need help raising your bed, a light bulb is out, etc.), please submit an online maintenance request or contact the front desk. 
  • Learn more about new on-campus dining options and hours of operation with Pitt EATS! 

You will only be permitted one helper (both of you must wear face coverings), there will be elevator capacity limits, and housing carts will need to be sanitized after each trip. 

See you soon!

Panthers are driven by the idea of finding solutions; no setback or challenge ever slows us down. Coronavirus has put our innovative spirit to the test, leading us to find safer and easier ways to welcome students to campus during Arrival. 

By now, you should have received your assigned move-in date and time for Arrival. This assignment has been carefully scheduled to ensure social distancing and adherence to safety precautions in place for the well-being of our Pitt community. We strongly encourage you to move in on your assigned Arrival date and time. 

Ship2Pitt provides on-campus students with pre-paid UPS Ground shipping service to deliver your belongings directly to your housing assignment 

We encourage you to pack light for move-in day in order to effectively social distance. Remember that you will only be permitted one helper, there will be elevator capacity limits, and housing carts will need to be sanitized after each trip. Visit our website for helpful packing checklists! 

Click here to learn more and create your 5 pre-paid shipping labels. You must supply your own shipping materials, and boxes should be no larger than 20x20x20 with a maximum weight of 50 lbs. per box. Please follow the Preparing Your Package guidelines.  

You should create your shipping labels and mail your belongings no later than ten days before your assigned move-in date to streamline delivery to your room. Parcels shipped less than ten days prior to your move-in date will be delivered to your residence hall mail facility and will require pick-up. If a package needs to be returned, Mailing Services can do so via the ProShip system or UPS portal. 

Please do not ship items prohibited by UPS, including illegal substances, explosives and weapons. You’ll receive an email notification from UPS once your packages are delivered to our centralized location for a security scan. You will receive an additional email notification once your packages are delivered to your housing assignment. 

Visit our Ship2Pitt FAQ for additional shipping information and helpful tips. Please contact us or email Ship2Pitt@pitt.edu with any questions! 

We’re excited to welcome new and returning panthers to campus! Please log on to my.pitt.edu, and visit the Panther Central community to view your housing assignment and roommate information, if applicable.

Learn more about your residence hall on our website and stay tuned for a personalized video in your email with more details about your specific housing assignment.

We’re putting the final touches on Arrival details for First-Year students and will send your assigned arrival date and time later this week. We’re planning a phased move-in strategy for your safety, as announced by the COVID-19 Medical Response Office this week.  

In the meantime, remember to pack light for move-in day and Ship2PittClick here to learn more and create your 5 pre-paid shipping labels.
