Parking at VA Pittsburgh's University Drive Facility
We are experiencing parking congestion at our University Drive campus. Some Veterans, visitors and staff are waiting longer than usual to park and access the facility. We apologize if you are affected by this congestion.
If you have an appointment at our University Drive campus, especially during late mornings or early afternoons, we encourage you to take public transportation, carpool, or leave extra time to account for parking delays.
Patient care remains a top priority. We are actively working on solutions to resolve this issue.
Should you have concerns or questions regarding this matter, please contact our Veterans Experience Office at (412) 360-3547.
The University Drive campus of VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System is located in the Oakland section of Pittsburgh, adjacent to University of Pittsburgh’s Petersen Events Center. It is an acute care and inpatient behavioral health facility with 146 beds available for medical, neurological, and surgical care in the main facility and 78 secure, private psychiatric beds in the consolidation building. This campus also receives the most outpatient visits of all VAPHS facilities.
Specialized services available at the University Drive campus include speech and audiology, dermatology, optometry/ophthalmology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, nephrology, sleep studies, urology, and more. The campus is also home to national, independent liver and renal transplant centers, along with a regional cardiac surgery center and an oncology referral center. In addition, our Women Veterans Health and Renal Dialysis programs have earned recognition as National Centers of Clinical Excellence.
A Fisher House is located on the University Drive campus. A "home away from home," the Fisher House provides accommodations for Veterans' families so they can stay with their loved one during hospitalization. This is the first Fisher House in the state of Pennsylvania.
In addition, a three-story research office building is located on the University Drive campus. The building encompasses more than 99,000 square feet of office and laboratory facilities for our investigators to advance their research and help VA Pittsburgh offer Veterans expanded programs and innovative therapies.
