Driving from the North & West

  • Take the Pennsylvania Turnpike East to Exit 3, Cranberry.
  • Follow Interstate 79 South to 279 South (Exit 21).
  • Stay on 279 South toward Pittsburgh.
  • As you near the city, follow signs for 579 South and the Veterans Bridge.
  • After crossing the bridge, watch carefully on your right for the 376 East/Oakland exit ramp. Bear right onto this ramp, which will place you on the Boulevard of the Allies.
  • Continue on the Boulevard of the Allies for approximately 1/2 mile. Do not bear right at the 376 East/Monroeville ramp. Instead, stay on the Boulevard and exit at the Forbes Avenue off ramp. (The exit will be marked with a small green sign, watch for it carefully!)
  • Stay in the right-hand lanes, following Forbes Avenue 1.3 miles through the Oakland business district to campus.
  • When you will see the Cathedral of Learning (University of Pittsburgh trademark building) to your left and the Carnegie Institute on your right, you will be at an intersection with a light at South Bellefield Avenue (this ends the one way street). Get into the left hand lane - you will go through the intersection and make a quick left at the next street which will be South Dirthridge Street.
  • The Mellon Institute's main entrance is located at 4400 Fifth Avenue - but the right side of the building is on South Dithridge Street - there is a indoor parking garage across from our building. Enter the middle entrance of the garage marked visitors.
  • You will enter the building through the main entrance on Fifth Avenue (which is the fourth floor of the building). Take the elevators down to the first floor. Our administrative associate Michelle is located in room 146. Our building is hard to miss - it has huge columns on 3-sides of the building.
