Life at LRU

LRU is home to a close and diverse community that supports all dreams and ambitions.

Live Your Best Life at LRU

Our small campus is where students from across the country and around the world meet lifelong friends, discover new interests and make the most of their talents.
Here, you can be yourself and write your next chapter—all while building meaningful relationships and memories with your peers and professors.

Get Involved

All LRU students have the opportunity to thrive by getting involved on campus. Find what you love or discover something new through:

  • 30+ student-run clubs and organizations
  • 14 Div. III athletic teams
  • On-campus activities and social events
  • Annual traditions like LRU Spirit Week, Homecoming, Festival of Lights and Late Night Breakfast
  • Trips to off-campus destinations and events, including concerts, theater productions, art shows and more in downtown Pittsburgh

You Belong Here

There’s room for everyone in the Redhawk Nest. LRU takes pride in its diversity and welcomes students from all walks of life.

Get to know your classmates from around the world, or participate in events like GLOBE Fest, an annual celebration of culture, fashion, music and food.

From the moment you arrive on campus until the day you graduate, you’ll live and learn in an all-inclusive environment that prepares you for today’s global society and diverse workforce.

The Best of Both Worlds

LRU students have access to it all: the culture and connections in the city of Pittsburgh, and a quiet, residential neighborhood. 

Whether you commute or live at LRU, your university experience will include all the comforts of a small campus, plus visits to famous museums, renowned sports venues and a dynamic cultural district just a 15-minute drive away.

With many global corporations and Fortune 500 companies located downtown, you’ll also benefit professionally and have the chance to network, intern or complete real-world assignments for industry leaders right here in Pittsburgh.
