The Pittsburgh Academy — 1787 Founded as the Pittsburgh Academy in 1787 on what was then the American frontier, the University of Pittsburgh is the oldest continuously chartered U.S. institution of learning west of the Allegheny Mountains.
From WUP to Pitt With an alteration in its charter in 1819, the Pittsburgh Academy became the Western University of Pennsylvania. Upon relocating to its current campus in Pittsburgh’s Oakland neighborhood in 1908, the school was renamed the University of Pittsburgh.
A State-Related University Pitt was a private institution until it became part of the Commonwealth System of Higher Education in 1966. As a state-related university, Pitt receives public funds and offers reduced tuition to Pennsylvania residents.
