Graphic Design

Our graphic designer can assist you in all phases of visual design. Our services are available to the University community for the support of classroom instruction, for program support, and for non-instructional purposes as well (fees apply).

The goal is to provide you with the desired materials before your deadline, but please note that this is not always possible. We appreciate you working with us to achieve a timeline for delivery that’s mutually beneficial. We greatly appreciate your understanding.

Completed orders are typically sent digitally. If you prefer to pick-up, you can do so at Classroom Services in B-10 Alumni Hall, 4227 Fifth Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15213. Business hours: Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

If you have questions, please e-mail us at or call at 412-648-7234.
