Welcome to Katz!

Mervis Hall: Home of the Katz MBA program

The majority of Katz MBA students' time is spent within the newly-renovated facility known as Mervis Hall, located on the University of Pittsburgh campus in Oakland, a neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Mervis Hall is located at the intersection of South Bouquet Street and Roberto Clemente Drive.

The MBA Admissions Office

The MBA 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 MBA suite on your right.

Suggested Parking

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 5th 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 ten minute walk from the Soldiers and Sailors Garage, so please plan accordingly.

Additional Parking Options

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 $4 per day. You may choose these options at your own expense.
