Welcome to America’s most livable city!
Carnegie Mellon is in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, a city that has recently been named the most livable in America by both Forbes and The Economist due to the variety of cultural amenities despite the relatively low cost of living compared to other major cities in the U.S.
CMU is located at the intersection of Pittsburgh’s Shadyside, Oakland, and Squirrel Hill neighborhoods. Read our Neighborhoods Near Carnegie Mellon University page to learn about these and other neighborhoods nearby CMU.
