On-Campus Resources
First Year Advising

Academic Advisors understand that the transition from high school to college can be a difficult one, and we consider it our number one priority to help you make that transition successfully. At one time or another, nearly all students experience challenges in and out of the classroom.  Our team of Academic Advisors will help you connect with your best experts on campus for the questions and challenges that may arise, and we encourage students to be proactive and seek help as soon as it is needed.  Building a Pitt Network is important, and we're here to help you connect!

The University of Pittsburgh offers a number of on-campus resources to our students. These services give students the opportunity to further develop their academic, physical, social, and mental well-being.

In addition to the key resource information below, the University also makes a great deal of resource information available through the Navigate Student mobile app.  Click on the dark blue Resources button on the Navigate Student main menu for information about the contact information and location of important campus resources, complete with maps to help you get there.  The Navigate Student app is available in the App Store or Google Play store.
