New Year, New Space - Bridgeside Point Update

November 29, 2018

We are happy to share that Pitt OT will be moving to Bridgeside Point I in December 2018! Our students, faculty, and staff are in the process of packing up the classrooms and laboratories. We are looking forward to starting the new year in our new space!


We would like thank each and every one of you who made a contribution to the “Help Pitt OT Students ‘Occupy’ Their New Space” campaign this past spring. Your gift has made a significant impact in the lives of our students and we are truly thankful for your support.


As we prepare to transition to our new space, we wanted to pause and take a moment to share an update with you, our supporters, and let you see the progress that has been made. We are officially in the final stages of construction – drywall is up, floors are being laid, and finishing touches are underway!


Thank you again for your generosity! We look forward to sharing further updates with you in the new year as we “occupy” our new space at Bridgeside Point.

THANK YOU for helping us celebrate National Occupational Therapy Month in a BIG way!


Due to your generosity we raised, $10,607! This is more than 20% above our original goal and we could not have done it without you.


Your donations will go toward creating a state-of-the-art, occupation-based learning environment for our OT students by stocking our new and expanding labs and learning spaces with real-world materials and equipment.


On behalf of the students, faculty, and staff at Pitt OT, THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts.


We look forward to welcoming you to our new space at Bridgeside Point this fall where you will have a chance to see first-hand how your gift is making a difference and look for your name on the I ♥ Pitt OT wall!


Thank you again for your generosity and for helping our students "occupy” their new space!

Last Day!

April 30, 2018

THANK YOU for helping us put even more “occupation” into our new space! This is the last day of our campaign, and because of your generosity we were once again able to re-evaluate our plan and set a new goal. Please help us continue to spread the word to reach $10,500 by midnight tonight!

A Big Pitt OT Thank You

April 27, 2018

THANK YOU for helping us reach our initial goal to help Pitt OT students "occupy" their new space! As OTs, we have re-evaluated our plan and have set a new goal – please help us spread the word to reach $10,000 which will allow us to put even more "occupation" into our new space at Bridgeside Point!

Woah, We're Halfway There!

April 18, 2018

OT Month is halfway over, and so is our campaign! We are still going strong in advancing toward our goal, but could use your support in helping us continue to spread the word. With just a few short weeks to go, we are at 81% of our goal.


Thank you to those who have gotten us this far – we are excited to see how much we can raise to support student learning by purchasing state-of-the-art, occupation-based equipment and materials for our larger, newly renovated space at Bridgeside Point. Most importantly, we are excited that you have joined us for this cause and look forward to sharing updates from our new space in the fall!


1 Week Down, 3 More to Go!

April 09, 2018

Hello Everyone! We finished week one of our campaign and would like to give a HUGE thank you for your generous support over the past five days. With your help, we have already reached 81% of our overall goal! Although we are well on our way, we continue to ask for your support in helping us spread the word about our campaign. As we move forward, be on the lookout for more updates, videos, and pictures of our classmates, professors, and more. We look forward to keeping you in the loop throughout the month as we embark on our journey to “occupy our new space!”


On behalf of the students and staff in the Occupational Therapy Department here at the University of Pittsburgh, THANK YOU!
