Carnegie Mellon University

Classroom Locations

Osher at CMU offeres courses are offered in four different places: the Carnegie Mellon University 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.

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 in the reminder emails one week before the course is supposed to begin.
