Directions for traveling to the Department of Rehabilitation Science and Technology at the University of Pittsburgh
The Department of Rehabilitation Science and Technology is located in the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences in Forbes Tower on the Campus of the University of Pittsburgh. The University is in the Oakland section of Pittsburgh and, in general, runs between Forbes and Fifth Avenues.
Forbes Tower is a contemporary yellow-orange brick building that faces on Sennott Street between Meyran and Atwood Streets. It is just off Forbes Avenue in the heart of Oakland.
On-street parking is scarce in Oakland. A parking garage is available under Forbes Tower and is reached on the Meyran side of the building. Other commercial parking is available nearby.
Numerous Port Authority Transit (PAT) bus routes stop near the RERC. Eastbound buses (from downtown) stop at the corner of Forbes and Atwood Streets and westbound (toward downtown) buses stop at Children's Hospital. These buses require walking only a short distance down Atwood Street to the Forbes Tower academic entrance.
To come to the RERC on Wheeled Mobility, enter the Forbes Tower on the Atwood Street side. The entrance is across the street from Rite Aid Drugstore. Take the elevator to the 5th floor. From the elevator, go to the right, at the main corridor go left to the end of the hall, turn right and continue on to the end of the hall and Room 5051 and the RERC.
