Alumni Hall

Alumni Hall is home to the Pitt Alumni Association, the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid, a 270-seat auditorium/lecture hall, and the 500-seat Connolly Ballroom, among other offices and facilities. The building’s first floor hosts the Legacy Gallery, a permanent exhibit featuring two unique touch-screen interactive kiosks. Visitors use the kiosks to explore the achievements of alumni, faculty, and students through video, audio, archival photos, and text.

Mellon Financial Corporation Hall, located on the fifth floor, includes classrooms, team rooms, and meeting space for the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business’s Center for Executive Education and Executive MBA Program. This refurbished space was made possible by a $1 million gift from Mellon Financial Corporation.

The seventh-floor auditorium lobby houses a collection of oil paintings, 365 Views of the Cathedral of Learning, completed in 1997-1999 by Spanish artist Felix de la Concha. Each painting features the Cathedral of Learning from a different vantage point for each of 365 days.

Originally a Masonic Temple and designed by renowned architect Benno Janssen, the limestone-clad building was constructed in 1914-15 and acquired by Pitt in 1993. It is a Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation Historic Landmark and part of the Oakland Civic Center Historic District.
