University Lecture Series - Carnegie Mellon University

University Lecture Series (ULS)

The University Lecture Series features a diverse range of lectures and performances by artists, scholars, and experts invited by Carnegie Mellon faculty, students, and staff.  Along with ULS events, additional campus programs featuring the work of CMU faculty, students, and staff or sponsored by colleges, departments, or programs are also included on the calendar.

Events are typically held at CMU's main campus in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania or at venues in the Pittsburgh area.  Many events are open to the public.  Please check with event sponsors to determine applicable restrictions or requirements (e.g., tickets, reservations, age limits, whether events are open to the public).  To help you find your way around CMU's beautiful campus, please see CMU's campus map webpage.

For individuals with disabilities who would like an accommodation to attend an event, please contact immediately the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs at 412-268-2075 during business hours (excluding holidays and semester breaks) or email, as coordinating accommodations may take several days.
