Center for Creativity

The Understory

Where: Cathedral of Learning, B50 (basement)

When: Tuesday through Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

C4C: The Understory is a centrally-located space open to all Pitt students, staff, and faculty looking to express themselves through performance — whether that’s on stage, on keyboard or guitar, or in a podcast studio. It’s a place to build community or to work solo on a serendipitous riff. It’s a place to experience who you are and not just who they think you are.


Reserving The Understory

We are now accepting reservations for practice rooms, the podcast studio, and the rehearsal stage for individuals, groups, and classes. Reserve through our Bookings page.

Current parameters for reservations:

  • Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • We may be able to accommodate group/class requests for Mondays or for events lasting until 9 p.m. on a case by case basis. Please submit these reservation requests at least two weeks in advance.
  • Requester must be a Pitt employee or student; that person will be responsible for making sure the space is cleaned up and returned to its original (start of event) condition.

No charge is associated with reservations.
