Campus Visit Form

We highly encourage you to visit Katz to observe a class, meet a current student, or speak with Admissions about the application and selection process. To help us plan your visit, please complete this short survey. Please allow at least two business days for scheduling, and note that weekend appointments are not available.

​Mervis Hall

The majority of Katz students' time is spent in Mervis Hall, located on the Pitt campus in the Oakland neighborhood. Mervis Hall is located at the intersection of South Bouquet Street and Roberto Clemente Drive.

Admissions Office

The Katz Admissions Office is located in Suite 301 of Mervis Hall. Upon entering the building, take the elevators to the third floor. Turn left out of the elevator, and proceed into the suite on your right.

Parking during Your Visit

Whether you are visiting for a group event or on an individual basis, we are happy to reimburse you for parking in the public garage at Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum, located at Fifth Avenue and Bigelow Boulevard. Upon your arrival in the MBA suite, notify an MBA admissions representative so that we may provide you with parking validation. Mervis Hall is about a 10-minute walk from the Soldiers and Sailors Garage, so please plan accordingly.

Other campus parking options include metered street parking on Roberto Clemente Drive and private open air lots located on Joncaire Street, directly behind and down the hill from Mervis Hall. The private lots currently charge a flat fee of $5 per day. You may choose these options at your own expense.
