Your next steps

The information below will answer many of the questions you may have and help you prepare for a smooth transition into your graduate studies at Duquesne.  

1. Set up your MultiPass

Set up your MultiPass. Your MultiPass username and password give you access to the campus Wi-Fi, email, DORI (Duquesne's intranet), billing, and other online learning tools. You are required to change your password every four months. Two weeks before your password is scheduled to expire, you will receive an email notifying you to change your password.

2. Start checking your Duquesne email

Your username for your university email account is your MultiPass username followed by @duq.edu, and the password is the same as your MultiPass password. There are two ways you can access your university email account:

  1. Visit duq.edu/dori and sign in with your MultiPass username and password. After signing in, click the Email icon in the top right corner of DORI.
