Limited Parking On Campus

Parking is limited on Carnegie Mellon’s campus. Although most urban university campuses experience limited parking, there are several additional reasons that may make parking on Carnegie Mellon’s campus particularly difficult, such as construction of new facilities, symposiums or conferences, campus-wide events (like Spring Carnival every April) and a record number of prospective students and families visiting campus. Please refer to the online campus map for the location of visitor parking areas, which includes our campus garage and limited meter parking in a few locations on campus.

If space is available, park in the East Campus Parking Garage* (5040 Forbes Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15213). Parking rates are detailed on our Parking and Transportation Services website

*Please note that because of ongoing construction projects and campus events, our East Campus Parking Garage is open but space may be limited. We offer limited meter parking elsewhere on campus. You can also look for parking slightly off campus, in a lot at the Bob O' Connor Golf Course, which is located at 5370 Schenley Dr., Pittsburgh, PA 15217. Also note that as the university becomes aware of dates that the East Campus Parking Garage will only be available to lease holders, these dates will be posted by Parking & Transportation Services. 

Our campus map (PDF format) is available if you'd like to print a copy in advance, however we also have them available in our Admission Lobby. Our online campus map is a good resource for finding locations around campus on a mobile device.

We also encourage you to look through or download specific city maps of Pittsburgh and city-wide Port Authority Transit bus schedules for your convenience.

As a reminder, our campus is experiencing a large number of construction and facility upgrade projects. We appreciate your continued patience while we work to make our maps more accurate and up to date.
