University of Pittsburgh at Titusville is a regional campus of the University of Pittsburgh. Opened in 1963, it is Pitt's only two-year campus.

Location

UPT is located in the city of Titusville, Crawford County, Pennsylvania, a city of approximately 6,000 residents. The campus is two hours north of Pittsburgh, two hours south of Buffalo, and two hours east of Cleveland.

Campus

The Titusville Campus, located on and adjacent to the former McKinney Estate, offers modern comfort and convenience in a traditional residential setting. McKinney Hall, built in 1870, houses administrative and faculty offices as well as classrooms. The Bennett Davis Building was formerly the carriage house of the estate. The recently restored Gazebo serves during warmer months of the year as a meeting place for campus organizations and as a location for special events.

Haskell Memorial Library, completed in 1975, is also located on land originally part of the McKinney Estate. It houses the campus collection of books and periodicals, a 200-seat auditorium, the UPT Computer Center, classrooms, faculty offices, and the George J. Barco Center for Continuing Education.

The George J. Barco Center for Continuing Education features state-of-the-art computer hardware and software, consisting of a Local Area Network (LAN) with 12 IBM-compatible PCs, and peripherals. The center is also equipped to receive and distribute distance learning programs through a state-of-the-art interactive video network.

The new $5 million Broadhurst Science Center opened in 1998. The 32,000 square foot structure houses biology, chemistry, psychology, geology, physics, and computer laboratories, faculty offices, plus two demonstration/lecture halls and one general classroom, all with multi-media video capability. The building also features a 417-seat theatre/auditorium–the new home for Pitt-Titusville’s Spotlight on the Lively Arts cultural events series and other events that enrich the life of the campus and surrounding communities.

Adjacent to the above group of buildings is the J. Curtis McKinney II Student Union/Gymnasium, completed in 1982. The east wing of the building offers a full-sized gymnasium, an auxiliary gym, and racquetball courts. The west wing of the building houses a snack bar, a large multi-purpose room, a television lounge, the UPT Book Center, the Student Affairs Office, the UPT Health Center, and the UPT Learning Center, as well as several classrooms and administrative offices.

Behind the student union/gymnasium is UPT’s newest and largest residence facility, Spruce Street Residence Hall, completed in 1988.

Two additional residence facilities lie one block east of the center of campus and adjacent to Burgess Park. The Joe M. Ball Residence Hall provides single and double rooms and is also the site of the UPT dining hall, while the UPT Town Houses provide apartment-style living arrangements.

Academics

Titusville offers 10 Associate's degrees, and over 100 relocation and transfer programs for students wishing to pursue a baccalaureate degree. In addition, two bachelor's degrees are offered on the Titusville campus through the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford: a Bachelor of Science in Business Management and a Bachelor of Arts in Human Relations.

Athletics

The University fields four intercollegiate athletic teams - women's volleyball, men's golf, men's basketball, and women's basketball. These teams are all Division I members of the National Junior College Athletic Association, in the Western Pennsylvania Collegiate Conference.
