Interesting Facts:
  • Carlow University's park-like campus in the bustling Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh features an outdoor art gallery and five secret gardens, one for each of our core values - one of which includes a waterfall!
  • Carlow is one of 17 schools in the country to have a program in cardiovascular perfusion, and has the nation's only program in behavioral neuroscience with intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IONM).
  • Carlow is home to an Early Learning Center (infants and toddlers) and a Campus Laboratory School (preschool through 8th grade), providing a unique opportunity for students in our education program to observe and develop their teaching skills right on campus.
