Living in Pittsburgh

Our students receive the best of both worlds: a residential setting and a major metropolitan area minutes away in one of the world's most livable cities.

From famous museums to renowned sports venues, historic attractions and numerous parks and neighborhoods, there’s so much to discover in LRU’s home city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

La Roche is located just 15 minutes north of downtown Pittsburgh, which means our students get the best of both worlds: all the comforts of a small, residential campus with big-city amenities nearby.
