In our first year communities you will live alongside students and friends working hard to achieve their goals. All students are required to live on campus during their first two years of undergraduate study, fostering environments to learn together, have new experiences and build unique relationships that can last a lifetime. There’s plenty to do on campus, and nearby, so you can balance the demands of classes with the excitement of all that Pittsburgh has to offer. On this page you can learn about the process for chossing housing and your roommate for your first year at Duquesne.
