Off-Campus means not through Pitt, so the school has nothing to do with it. So I mean you would get to pick your roommates, but it's really late to be looking for anywhere to live now...
I'm looking early just so I'm prepared. But what about the school owned "off campus" apartments?
Not likely, they have a very limited number of suites for an enormous amount of applicants
Depends what your preferred dorm is. Holland, likely. Towers, likely. Sutherland? Not likely. Panther or PA? Not likely.
what about forbes?
I really don't know, you can probably get it as long as you turned your forms in pretty early?
you'll get the info in the mail in approx. 10 days

Every residence hall at Pitt has its own distinct perks and downfalls. When you first get to Pitt, you’ll find the majority of your class living in Towers A or B, which are all-freshman housing. Many upperclassmen see the Towers as “the most fun you’ll never want to have again.” The best thing about these dorms is that all residents are in the same boat—this makes it a great place to meet people and make friends during your first year. On the other hand, the rooms are small and pie-shaped—the Towers are actually circular high-rises. Some students say that this adds character, while others end up feeling like they’re housed in a sardine can. If all-freshman living isn’t your cup of tea, there are a few other options available for first-years. If you’re a female, Holland Hall offers a more spacious alternative and is located right next door to Towers. You will be right on the quad, close to everything. Forbes and Sutherland are universally regarded as the best dorms on campus, but they are also the farthest from everything. If you live in either of these, you’ll either learn to love walking up hills or spend a lot of time waiting for shuttles.
Overall, the residence halls are well-maintained. One of the biggest complaints is that the housing staff does not clean semi-private or private bathrooms, only communal areas. Students have also mentioned that hallways aren’t always swept, and housing tends to keep quiet about the fact that you can borrow vacuum cleaners from many of the main desks at residence halls. Every dorm is outfitted with 24-hour security service, and you must be a building resident in order to get in. This keeps Pitt housing feeling very safe, but many students agree that it also makes simple tasks, such as having friends visit, much more difficult—you have to sign everyone in and out. While you probably won’t find the height of your college experience living on campus, you can be sure that one of the halls has an environment you’ll be able to deal with during your first years.
