Residence Life


  •  What's New in Res Life?

    • Pitt Bradford is home to 1,000 residents in the Fall & 900 in the Spring
    • Returning students who want Fall Housing need to make a $125 deposit in the Hanger building & register for 12 or more Fall credit hours by April 7.  On April 11 those who have done so will get an appointment time (based on seniority) for April 12-14 to come to Housing to select your Fall Housing.
    • For new students this Fall, you should have received an email on where to go to fill out your Housing application. If you have not received your email, please email Dr. Binder (binder@pitt.edu)
    • Thanks to the 438 (44%) of our residents who filled out the RA survey.  All areas of the survey increased this year! We will use this information to improve your Spring residential experience

    Resident Advisors

    To help you ease into college life, we employ specially trained students as Resident Advisors. These RAs, who are upper-class students, assist students with their transition to college, welcome back returning students, provide educational programming, and are a "point-of-contact" for any issues. Your RA lives in your section and has all the supplies you will need for your apartment (trash bags, light bulbs, toilet paper, vacuum, etc.).


    We also provide:

    • Residence Hall Linens Program You can purchase linens that fit our (36X80) beds and other supplies.
    • USA Today, The New York Times and TheBradford Era newspapers through the Newspaper Readership Program to help you stay informed.
    • RESNET - the university's computer network including wireless in all halls
    • Travel & transportation information to help you get around locally and make your trips home more easy
