Hillman Library Reinvention Fund

Join us as we reimagine Hillman Library!

Hillman Library is undergoing a top-to-bottom reinvention to create people-focused spaces for connection and creation. Your gift to the Hillman Reinvention Fund supports a Library that encourages innovation, stimulates creativity, and fosters collaboration.

The multiyear project, begun in 2017, is expected to be completed by 2023. When the third floor reopened in August of 2020, we welcomed the Pitt community, primarily virtually, to a spacious reading room, a technology-enabled classroom, consultation rooms, and group study spaces. Take a virtual tour of the renovated third floor, and stay tuned for updates about Phase 3 of the renovation project which includes floors 1 and 2.

When completed, these newly renovated floors will contain:
•    An expanded and relocated Open Lab
•    A large, open study area with movable furniture, which can be reconfigured into event space
•    A significantly expanded indoor/outdoor café
•    An accessible ramp entrance on the Forbes Ave. side of the building
