About Robert Morris University

Robert Morris University (RMU) was founded in 1921 as the Pittsburgh School of Accountancy in the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States. After occupying several downtown buildings in 1963 the school moved to Pine Hill Manor, an estate purchased form a wealthy local businessman located in the suburb of Moon Township in Pittsburgh. The campus was finished by the end of the 60s and RMU became a four-year college. The university continued to grow, expanding its range of undergraduate courses and adding postgraduate programs in 1977. The institution became Robert Morris University in 2002 and the last decade has seen extensive building work expanding and modernising the campus.

Today RMU is a thriving, coeducational private university with around 5,000 students studying a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications. The university offers more than 60 bachelor’s programs, 20 graduate options and three doctoral-level areas of study. The university’s academic offering is divided between its five schools: the School of Business, the School of Education and Social Sciences, the School of Nursing and Health Sciences, the School of Communications and Information Systems and the School of Engineering, Mathematics and Science.

The RMU campus covers 230 acres in suburban Pittsburgh near the Pittsburgh International Airport. There are 21 buildings housing the university’s academic and administrative facilities and 14 residential halls – 86 percent of freshmen live on-campus. The student centre is the focal point of the campus and contains the university bookstore, café, post office, library and lounge areas.
