Osher at CMU offeres courses are offered in four different places: the Carnegie Mellon University campus, the Chatham University Eden Hall campus, virtually on Zoom, and at a multitude of Community Sites around Pittsburgh.
Most Osher classes occur on the Carnegie Mellon campus, primarily in the brand new Osher Lifelong Learning Institute designated space in Cyert Hall, Level B. There are four classrooms in our space: the Olmsted Activity Room, the Hawkins Conference Room, Osher Classroom A, and Osher Classroom B.
Classes with high enrollment may meet at Mellon Institute, College of Fine Arts, Posner Hall, or Baker/Porter Hall. Classes given by community institutions also are held in many locations throughout Pittsburgh. Locations are shown in the catalog.
Eden Hall Campus
Courses held on the Eden Hall Campus will usually be held in the Esther Barazzone Center in the Media Room. Other classrooms and locations may be used on occasion and will be noted in the catalog.
Eden Hall has a FREE parking lot for members to use along Ridge Road. Please allow a few minutes to walk from your car to the classrooms.
We partner with Community Sites to present courses that would be best presented off-campus. Some of these courses are our exercise courses and cooking courses. Additionally, some museums or organizations host Osher participants for courses at their own locations.
Many off-campus locations now have a $10 building fee to subsidize the rental charge. There is no charge for CMU classrooms.
Please note: We do not always partner with all of the community sites listed below - this is just a sampling.
Zoom courses are a great way to be a part of the program if you're unable to come to campus.
If you sign up for a Zoom course, the office sends out a Zoom meeting ID and passcode the one business day before the course is supposed to begin.
