Residence Life Frequently Asked Questions
Where will I be living?
As an international undergraduate student, you will live in one of five Living/Learning Centers. At Duquesne, we believe that a university education is not just about academic learning but also it’s about social, cultural and personal learning. By living on campus, you have the opportunity to bond with like-minded students in a safe, convenient social environment.
What are the rooms like?
Living/Learning Center rooms are equipped with:
- One, two or three beds, dressers, closets, desks, desk chairs and bookshelves
- One phone line per room
- Access to voice mail options through the University telephone service
- Television cable channels
- All rooms are wired for access to high speed network connections for access to library resources and the Internet
- Computer labs, study and TV lounges are available in each building
- Free laundry facilities
- Refrigerators/microwaves can be rented and carpeting is sold on move-in day(s)
- Most international students choose to share a room as it is cheaper and a good way of getting to know others.
- Once you confirm and register for your room, you complete a questionnaire allowing the Office of Residence Life to match you up with someone who has similar interests and habits.
What support will I have in the dorms?
Duquesne has over 80 members of staff on duty 24-hours. Resident Assistants help students with the day-to-day experiences of living on campus by:
- assisting with personal and academic problems
- planning floor programs for residents
- enforcing policies and procedures
