Description

Commonly referred to as Pitt-Titusville, this is a regional campus of the University Of Pittsburgh.

Begun in 1787 in a log cabin as the Pittsburgh Academy, the University Of Pittsburgh is one of the oldest continuously chartered institutions of higher education in the United States.

Pitt-Titusville was established in 1963 in response to a long-recognized need for higher educational opportunities in the Oil Creek Region, part of rural Crawford County. Titusville, a town of about 6000 people, is famous for its 1859 oil strike that gave birth to the modern oil industry. Pitt-Titusville is the only two year campus in the university system.

The Titusville campus is built on the site of a former private estate. McKinney Hall, built in 1870, houses administrative and faculty offices as well as classrooms.[4] The Bennett Davis Building was formerly the carriage house of the estate. The recently restored Gazebo serves during warmer months of the year as a meeting place for campus organizations and as a location for special events.

Other facilities include the Haskell Memorial Library, which features a 200-seat auditorum.
