Duquesne Acquires Forbes Avenue Property
Duquesne University has purchased a Forbes Avenue property located between two existing campus buildings. The acquisition of address 705-709 Forbes results in the University owning all of the property on the avenue between Boyd Street and Magee Street, providing for a contiguous campus leading into Uptown.
"A Duquesne education is in strong demand. Strategic acquisitions like this building allow the University to meet its growing need for space, now and in the future," said Dr. Charles Dougherty, Duquesne University president. Under Dougherty’s leadership, Duquesne has been ranked among the nation’s top universities, and enjoyed record-breaking enrollment and retention.
Other campus buildings located on the north side of Forbes Avenue are Mendell Hall, Fisher Hall, and the state-of-the-art Power Center, which houses recreation, Barnes and Noble, Jamba Juice and the Red Ring restaurant.
The building is slated to house administrative offices beginning in April 2010.
Founded in 1878, Duquesne is consistently ranked among the nation's top Catholic universities for its award-winning faculty and tradition of academic excellence. Duquesne, a campus of nearly 9,500 graduate and undergraduate students, has been nationally recognized for its academic programs, community service and commitment to sustainability.
