Directions to Cooper Conference Center

  • Start at the UPMC Shadyside Hospital Centre Avenue Garage elevator lobby
  • Turn left off elevator and walk through sliding glass doors (there will be another set of elevators in front of you  - do not take them).
  • Take walkway on your right toward Hillman Cancer Center.
  • Follow the hallway back to the pedestrian walkway that goes over Centre Ave. to Hillman Cancer Center.
  • Once in the cancer center, walk past the café on your left, and take the first hallway to the left.
  • You can then either take the stairs on your left, or the elevators on your right to the ground level (1st floor).
  • Once on the first floor, walk towards the gift shop (if you get to the lobby of Hillman, you went the wrong way!).
  • Turn right at the gift shop and Cooper Conference Center will be on your left.

If for any reason you can’t get through the hospital using the walkway, you can exit Shadyside Hospital out the doors across from the Centre Avenue Garage elevators, walk to the light on the corner, cross the street, turn left, walk down the block, enter Hillman Cancer Center through the big revolving doors, turn left towards the gift shop and follow the directions above from the gift shop.
