 Location of Institute Offices

Hunt Institute is located on the campus of Carnegie Mellon University, in the Oakland section of Pittsburgh, in the city's East End. Institute offices are in the Hunt Library building, a five-story aluminum and glass structure located on Frew Street (near Schenley Park) and facing the "Cut" (the large grassy field in the center of campus). All visitors to the Institute should report to the receptionist on the fifth floor of the Hunt Library building.

The Institute is open Monday through Friday, except holidays, from 9 a.m. to noon, and 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Readers' hours in the Library are from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. The gallery is open on Sundays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. during an exhibition. (Please see the Exhibitions page for a listing of the dates.) The Institute is closed on Saturdays. Because our hours of operation are occasionally subject to change, please call or email before your visit to confirm our hours.
