University Commons

If you're a student at PITT, you've probably heard of University Commons before. Heck, maybe you've even been there.

Here's the low down. University Commons is an undergraduate student housing hub in the heart of Oakland.

It consists of three distinct properties: University Commons at Dawson Street, The Lofts at University Commons, and University Commons at McKee Place. Our award-winning community is ready to offer you an exceptional living experience.

Whether you’re planning on living alone or moving in with some of your besties or bros, our floor plans have spacious living areas and private bedrooms to fit your needs. Apartments include updated interiors, kitchens, and bathrooms. Some units have exposed brick, original fireplace mantles, and outdoor patios. Plus, laundry facilities are in the building and parking is available in our private lots for an additional fee.

Parents, rest assured your son or daughter is moving into a safe, well-maintained apartment complex. Our on-site maintenance and management team is available all day, every day for any emergencies that may arise, and our leasing staff makes the rental process as simple as possible, walking you through the online leasing process and answering any questions you may have along the way.
