About Pittsburgh PA

Beyond campus, you’ll benefit from all the amenities of a world-class city.

At La Roche a residential campus doesn’t mean you’ll miss out on big-city living. Downtown Pittsburgh is only a 15-minute drive away, which means your college experience will include visits to famous museums, renowned sports venues and a dynamic cultural district.

With an economy largely based on health care, education, technology and financial services, Pittsburgh is an opportunity-filled city. Whether you want to intern or network with industry leaders, you won’t be far from the headquarters of many global corporations and Fortune 500 companies.
