Renovated in 2013, the Commuter Center was completely revamped to meet the needs of Duquesne's commuter students. Located on the first floor of the Duquesne Union building, the Commuter Center becomes many students' "home away from home". Spending time in the Commuter Center is a great way to meet other commuter students and to keep up on what events and programs are going on.
As part of the renovations, all new furniture was purchased for the Commuter Center. The lounge area consists of ample comfortable seating, tables and chairs, as well as a flat-screen television. There is also a kitchenette area that has a sink, microwave, and refrigerator for students to use at their disposal. Lockers are also available for anyone who wishes to rent them. To do so, please visit the main campus bookstore on Forbes Ave.
In addition to the lounge area, the Commuter Center consists of a lobby area used for programming, as well as the following spaces:
Quiet Study Room- Room 111
The quiet study room is a great place for students to study without any noise or distractions. It is equipped with tables and chairs for students to either work individually or in a group-like setting.
Computer Lab- Room 112
The computer lab is maintained by staff from CTS and is only open during posted hours of operations. There are several computers and a printer, all of which are free to use with your DU ID.
Commuter Council Office- Room 114
The Commuter Council office is located right next to the Office of Commuter Affairs. Commuters are always welcome to stop in and talk to any of the Executive Board members. Please remember that they are students themselves, so they cannot staff their office full time. However, you will often see them in there in-between classes.
Office of Commuter Affairs- Room 115
The Commuter Affairs office consists of a Director, Secretary, Graduate Assistant, Student Aide, and the Commuter Assistants. The office has an "open door walk-in" policy, so students are always welcome to just come in and talk to someone in the office. Whether it is about a program you would like to see the office sponsor or seeking out help for a class you may be having difficulty in, our staff is always willing to go above and beyond to help you. Please stop by anytime, even just to say hi!
