About Pittsburgh

City of Pittsburgh

A city classified as #1 is considered a ranking to most, but when you live in Pittsburgh it's a way of life. The Places Rated Almanac ranked Pittsburgh the number one place to live in the country, not once but two times. It's the only city to receive the number one status twice.

Downtown is a stone's throw from the Duquesne campus, giving students access to a plethora of activities.

Pittsburgh is a small metropolitan city with a big city way of life. From arts and recreation to sports and healthcare, people come from around the region to enjoy all that the city has to offer. Pittsburghers are as passionate about the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra as they are the Pittsburgh Steelers, Penguins or Pirates.

The Pittsburgh skyline is dotted with the names of national corporations, and the city is home to eight Fortune 500 companies. Business students have access to a host of internships at major enterprises that are within walking distance of the campus.

Staying fit is easy on countless walking, running and biking trails. There's rowing on the three rivers, and an hour's drive will have you snowboarding or slaloming your way down the mountains of several skiing locales.

Through a brisk walk or short drive, students can access the following cool activities and neighborhoods:

Transportation in and around Pittsburgh is excellent. Duquesne's campus is centrally located with many neighborhoods only a 15-minute bus ride away, and bus service runs regularly which makes it easy to commute around the city.

Live. Work. Study. Play. Pittsburgh.
