K. Leroy Irvis Hall is located near the Petersen Events Center on the upper campus, where it offers striking views of Oakland. The building houses 420 upper-class men and women in four-person suites and doubles with private baths. Each floor includes a lounge and laundry facility. There is a fitness center on the ground floor.
Irvis Hall houses two living learning communities: upperclass honors and health sciences.
Originally called Pennsylvania Hall, the building was renamed in 2017 in honor of K. Leroy Irvis, a Pitt Law alumnus, teacher, activist and longtime member of Pennsylvania's House of Representatives. In 1977, Irvis's colleagues unanimously elected him as speaker of the house; he was the first African American to serve as a house speaker in any state legislature in the United States since Reconstruction.
