Life in Pittsburgh

Live the Excitement of Pittsburgh's Youth-Driven Revitalization

Forging the Future

Heinz College is located in the heart of the City of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We’re proud to call Pittsburgh “home,” and you will be, too. Pittsburgh consistently ranks among the top places to live, work, and visit in the United States. And that favorable reputation is largely thanks to the influx of young people in our community over the course of the last decade. Individuals in their 20s constitute 23 percent of Pittsburgh’s population, fourth-highest among America’s largest cities. And because of its low cost of living, large concentration of universities and colleges, and recent cultural renaissance, Pittsburgh ranks among the top cities in the U.S. for millennials, Gen Z, and recent college graduates – making it the ideal place for you to live and learn as you complete your studies.

Along the way, you just might fall in in love with the City of Bridges. But don’t take our word for it: check out all of the great things that Pittsburgh has to offer outside of the classroom.
