Study Lab

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to studying. Explore how you can study smarter, not harder, and make the most of your time at Pitt.

Study Lab is home to a generous staff of experienced professionals and students, who serve as guides and mentors throughout your academic journey. Tutors are students who have recently been just where you are now and understand your challenges, as well as your goals.

Whether you are looking for a quick on-demand answer, a one-on-one session about that upcoming chem test, a video tutorial about a tricky concept, or to connect to a group of other students headed to med school, there is something here for you.
