Facilities at Pitt Public Health

With support from donors, the University of Pittsburgh, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Pitt Public Health is nearing completion of an $80-million, multi-year expansion and renovation project. The most significant investment in our physical plant since the founding of the school in 1948, the “Building for a Healthier World” project has funded the creation of new, state-of-the-art laboratories, academic areas, and communal spaces. 

Pitt Public Health's main complex now consists of three unified structures a completely renovated Parran Hall, Crabtree Hall, and the new laboratory pavilion. 

With construction slated to wrap in late 2017 and office moves in early 2018, we plan on a big ribbon-cutting event in conjunction with the school's 70th Anniversary Celebration and Alumni Reunion in mid March 2018.
