About Chatham University

Now fully coed, Chatham University in Pittsburgh, PA, has over 2,100 undergraduate and graduate students (on-campus and online) in over 60 programs in the health and lab sciences, sustainability, business and communications, and the arts and humanities. Chatham is the alma mater of environmental icon Rachel Carson (Class of ’29), and is recognized as a leader in the field of sustainability, having been selected as one of the Top 50 Green Colleges by The Princeton Review, named in the top 20 of Sierra Magazine's list of "Cool Schools" and mentioned in a 2012 Forbes article as one of the places "contributing to Pittsburgh's transformation into a destination for green living."

Building on these accomplishments, Chatham opened in 2014 the world’s first fully sustainable campus in higher education, Eden Hall Campus. Consistently ranked as a best college by U.S. News & World Report, Chatham earned the highest ranking among western Pennsylvania institutions in the“Regional Universities - North” category for 2015. Chatham University consists of the School of Health Sciences; the Falk School of Sustainability; the School of Arts, Science and Business; Chatham College; and the College for Continuing & Professional Studies.

Campus information

Chatham’s Shadyside Campus is the University's historic, original location and is one of the country's most unique and picturesque, urban college campuses consisting of the 39-acre Woodland Road arboretum. The Shadyside Campus expanded in 2008 with the renovation and opening of the LEED Silver building, Chatham Eastside, near the Bakery Square development in Pittsburgh.

Chatham became the largest university by land mass in Allegheny County in 2008 with the gift of the 388-acre Eden Hall Campus in Richland Township, approximately 19 miles north of the Shadyside Campus. Eden Hall Campus, home to Chatham's Falk School of Sustainability is the first academic community in the world built from the ground up for the study of sustainable living, learning, and development. Using the latest in environmentally responsible technology, design, and innovation, Eden Hall will be self-sustaining in every way by emitting zero carbon emissions, managing all waste and storm water on-site, and producing more energy than it consumes. It is designed to one-day serve more than 1,500 students in the fields of sustainability, health sciences, business, and more. By protecting valuable watersheds, incorporating surrounding land and agricultural resources, and rehabilitating existing farm structures alongside developing new green buildings, Eden Hall will be a one-of-a-kind venue for education, conferences, community outreach, and ecotourism.

Shadyside Campus

Accommodation

Upper class students overwhelmingly agree that one of the best parts of living on campus as a First Year student is having a roommate. All incoming residential students complete a Roommate Survey once they are accepted to the University. The Office of Residence Life & Student Activities - Student Affairs matches roommates according to their study & sleep habits and co-curricular interests. 

Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors may choose their own roommates each year at room selection. If you are an upperclass student returning to Chatham after a time away, or decide mid-year that you’d like to live on campus, you  may contact the university directly.
